Ockeghem’s Missa Prolationum is one of the most impressive contrapuntal works in music history. It is wholly comprised of canons, mostly two pairs of independent canons. The most amazing ones start at the same time and drift asunder because of their different mensura, a vision of relativity theory in the 15th century. Moreover the canon intervals go from unison to octave in the Osanna. After the eucharist where perfection is reached we go back to the men on earth and to canons in the fifth.
The foundation is planning a new project with this mass.
