🔊 Mass for St. Anthony Abbott

Program: #05-23, Air Date: 05/30/05

All of the music on this recording is from the Hyperion disc Mass for St. Anthony Abbott featuring the Binchois Consort directed by Andrew Kirkman (CDA 67474). As we heard on Millennium of Music program 03-06 (featuring the Mass for St. Anthony of Padua, Hyperion CD 66854), the great Guillaume Dufay (1397-1474) bequeathed two manuscripts of his own music to the St. Stephen Chapel in Cambrai. Aside from the Anthony of Padua Mass and a three-voice Requiem, there was an Anthony Abbott Mass. While the manuscript has been lost, the Anthony of Padua Mass was identified by David Fallows in a Trent manuscript in the late '70s; and a Missa Beati Anthoni found in another Trent source has the Propers for the Feast of Anthony Abbott. While Anthony Abbott was a desert father (c. 251-356), the shrine in the Vienne region south of Lyons is also the founding community of the Antonine order. Both Dufay and is estimable contemporary Gilles Binchois wrote music for his feast day on January 17th.
