This wasn't how the music for the mass was (or is) used, but the performance mode fit the way this music, distant from us in time and place, was initially taught and understood - it sought to elucidate the music's basic structure and characteristics. And in this it succeeds. On the program are two of the more extreme masses of the High Renaissance: the murky Requiem of Pierre de la Rue and the intellectually acrobatic Missa Hercules dux Ferrariae of Josquin, along with the famous Deploration sur la mort de Johannes Ockeghem.

Renaissance Sculpture Masterpieces Early Sculpture of the 15th century. The beginnings of Renaissance Sculpture as an art form sprang from the commissioning of two doors for the Baptistery in Florence. The artist tasked for this work was the local metalworker Lorenzo Ghiberti (1378-1455). Ghiberti had won a competition for the first door to be completed in bronze which was to be a replacement for an existing wooden door. These panels are framed by figures of the prophets set in a slim vertical arrangement, they alternate with small busts and appear almost as three-dimensional sculptures.
