Jacob Obrecht: Missa de Sancto Donatiano

The story surrounding the Missa de Sancto Donatiano begins with the banishing, for political reasons, of the wealthy Bruges furrier, Donaas de Moor. An exile in Zeeland at his death in 1483, he stipulated in his will that masses in his name be endowed at the Church of St James in Bruges. Scholars have shown that the polyphonic mass composed for this occasion was Obrecht´s Mass.

The Missa de Sancto Donatiano (1487) incorporates songs and chants familiar to the faithful of Bruges in connection with celebrations of St Donatian (St Donaas), the patron saint of the city and of course the patron saint of Donaas de Moor.
