  Jean Mouton (c. 1450 - 1522) belonged to one of the most extraordinary generations

  of composers the Western world has ever produced.  But to ears attuned to the 

  important shifts in musical style that occurred between the late-medieval sound-world

  of Palestrina, Mouton's music stands out from that of his contemporaries as the most

  'advanced' - more even than Josquin, and much more than the others, Mouton paved

  the way for the classic vocal polyphony of the sixteenth century.

 

  The Gentlemen of St John's was formed in the early 1970s by the Choral Scholars
  of St John's College, Cambridge, whose reputation as one of the world's leading choirs

  is long established.
