Missa Pange Lingua

   A late and possibly the last mass (after 1514 ?) of Josquin Desprez, it is a superb example of the paraphrase mass whereby the borrowed hymn melody Pange lingua gloriosi appears throughout the mass ordinaries in all four voices at different times in the new technique of structural imitation. Fifteen early 16th-century sources attest to its fame. A recent critical edition has been edited by Thomas Warburton for the University of North Carolina Press, 1977. The piece requires about one half hour to sing.
