Show Summary Details


Before his death, Dufay founded seventeen monophonic and polyphonic Masses to be held by his tomb in a chapel, Masses for saints not in the service books for the main choir of Cambrai Cathedral, thus foundations not conforming to a “use”. Archives and service books explain the foundations and context of Dufay's Masses for Anthony of Padua (one of his 17); Anthony Abbot (probably for an obit of the dukes of Burgundy celebrated in Brussels); his lost polyphonic Office of the Dead; and his Missa “Ave regina celorum” (for the Marian Mass in the Cathedral's choir).
