Jean Mouton (c. 1459 – 30 October 1522) was a French composer of the Renaissance. He was famous both for his motets, which are among the most refined of the time, and Mouton may have been the editor of the illuminated manuscript known as the Medici Codex, one of the primary manuscript sources of the time. Mouton was a fine musical craftsman throughout his life, his compositions underpin an incredible lyricism and sweetness of tone with music of the utmost in mathematical complexity. The disc sound (in the lovely acoustic of Merton College Chapel, Oxford) is outstanding and the notes are readable and interesting. This excellent recording being provided both sharp focus and a sense of spaciousness and depth.
