There's a recording of it reviewed by Classics Today with a bit of information on it. It seems its official name is the Peterhouse Mass.

Thanks - I'm listening now. And of course, I booked a seat at the concert!

Which turned out to be an enjoyable hour -- it's going to be broadcast and streamed. The high point for me was the Tallis lamentation and a piece by Byrd which was very contrapuntal. The Tye mass was certainly interesting in the Gloria and Sanctus. Cinquecento are the sort of singers who've thought hard about how to present their music, the focus is on sound and not on meaning. They are Bildungsbuergertum.
