i apologize in advance for this question completely unrelated to the matter of your post… i have recently listened (and again, and again, apparently in an endless row) to the tallis scholars’ recording of josquin’s missae malheur me bat and fortuna desperata. mag ni fi cent rendition, by the way. i’ve been studying the first one for the last couple of years, considering it one of the sharpest examples of josquin’s methods, especially in the rhythmic aspects. but it was my first encounter with the second one. and it happens to wear the most incredible agnus dei i’ve ever listened to. so, being on the road of forming a little choir devoted to renaissance music, avid for repertoire, i started looking for the score. no: i felt the urge to have this ultraterrestrial music on paper and start singing it now, heheh… so, the fact: i’ve burnt my eyelashes going through every music site, even finding such marvels as the cmme project, and… nothing. the one or two stores that have it can’t send it to argentina (where i am), or would charge my lifetime savings for it. i’m sad! well… not yet. heh. do you know any way i can get out of this dilemma? well, hoping to have not being too annoying… my warmest regards.

I enjoyed reading this! The best place for Josquin editions is the New Josquin Edition. Yes, we use it, with permission, for just about everything. Does your library have it? If not, I can help you further.
you mean the albert smijers edition, don’t you? as silly as it may seem… i can’t find it anywhere here. not in cordoba neither in buenos aires. i couldn’t also find it in online stores (fun thing that most stores offer the same that’s already available in cpdl or imslp). so… if you can help me, i’d be very grateful! best wishes again, LL
mmm now that i googled “new josquin edition”, the kvnm page appeared… i hadn’t thought of that! it’s a little expensive but i think i can handle it. thank you very much! i swear i had used every possible combination including “josquin”, “missa” and “fortuna desperata”… i’ll be more imaginative next time, hahah. good evening!
