Ockeghem - A Life in Music

One of the most influential composers of his time - or any other time for that matter, Johannes Ockeghem has been called "the most original musical mind of the 15th century". He was so highly regarded by his contemporaries that many of them wrote poems and music to honour him. Catherine Bott explores Ockeghem's life together with some of these musical tributes and homages to the man who they called "Maistre et bon pere" - master and good father.
