Power, Leonel

(c. 1375, Kent?, England – 5 June 1445, Canterbury)
   Credited, along with John Dunstable, with the earliest cantus firmus mass, the Missa Alma Redemptoris Mater (c. 1420s–1430s), although the attribution is not certain. He was admitted to the fraternity of Christ Church in Canterbury on 14 May 1423. He composed three cyclic masses, four other pairs of mass ordinaries, 19 single mass movements, and about 16 motets and other sacred Latin settings, although there are many other works of disputed authorship that may be his.
