Ockeghem’s emulation of the original Caput Mass, whoever its author may have been, certainly shows him to have been inclined toward tours de force, for which the French, as we know, had a longstanding predilection. The most famous tours de force in all of fifteenth-century music, in fact, are a couple of Masses by Ockeghem—works with which his historical reputation, for better or worse, is indissolubly bound up.
