Recorded in the Lady Chapel of the great Archabbey of Pannonhalma, these remarkable mass and Vesper settings performed by the Schola Hungarica are taken from 15th and 16th century manuscripts from what was in the late 1500s the largest Hungarian city not under Ottoman rule, Pozsony, now Bratislava. They were donated in 1571 by the widow Anna Hannsen Schuman to the collegiate chapter of that city.
