Pierre De La Rue: Missa Nuncqua, Missa Inviolata
The Brabant Ensemble, Stephen Rice
Rue, P: Missa Nuncqua fue pena mayor Salve Regina VI Missa Inviolata Magnificat Tone VI

If today he is less well known than some of his contemporaries, the distinguished advocacy of Stephen Rice and The Brabant Ensemble should do much to redress the balance.
