Misc. Comments

Apparently attributed to Ockeghem until a certain point: the Leipzig copy (dating from 1834 and made by Friedrich Rochlitz?) attributes this mass probably wrongly to "Okenheim" - an old name for Ockeghem used even in the early part of the 20th century (Barrett, 1911: "Okenheim, Okeghem, or Ockegem, as he is variously called"). This situation is summarized in the Wikipedia article.
