Their first Josquin disc coupling his Missa Pange lingua and his Missa La sol fa re mi was released in 1986 and their second coupling both his Masses based on the L'homme armé tune was released in 1989, but this coupling of his Missa Sine nomine and Missa Ad fugam was released 20 years later in 2008. In the event, it was worth the wait.

Josquin's Missa Sine Nomine deserves to be heard far more often than it is. Likewise his 'mass in fugue. In fact, this performance, recorded in 2008, is the only one availble. Anyone listening to The Tallis Scholar's 2008 recording of "Missa Sine Nomine" will probably instantaneously understand the enthusiasm with which the twentieth and twenty-first centuries have re-embraced Josquin. This gorgeous piece seems impossibly layered as it undulates and weaves vocal melodies around each other to an impressive extent. That full drenched sound comes not only from the mature compositional skills of Josquin, but also from the form he chose

In the Missa Ad Fugam, the canonic writing is always between the top part and the third, with the two lines always a fifth apart, though the distance between the successive entities varies from movement to movement. In the Sine Nomine, the canonic writing is far freer, with individual lines forming and re-forming connections with others as the work goes on. It's intricate but fascinating to unravel, and both masses are gravely beautiful pieces, unfolded with wonderful clarity and purity of tone by Phillips's eight-voice choir.

The Missa Sine nomine is a setting of the Ordinary of the Mass by Renaissance composer Josquin des Prez. It is a work of his maturity, probably dating from the period after he returned to Condé-sur-l'Escaut in 1504. It is one of Josquin's only masses not to be based on pre-existing material, and like the Missa ad fugam, it is a canonic mass. The circumstances of its composition are unknown
