Hyperion's November list includes several early music recordings:

Sacred treasures of Christmas
T‎HE LONDON ORATORY SCHOLA CANTORUM
C‎HARLES COLE conductor

A celebration of Christmas from the Nativity through to Candlemas, in music from across sixteenth-century Europe: Renaissance polyphony at its finest.

Sacred motets from the Golden Age
of Spanish polyphony
Sacred treasures of Spain
T‎HE LONDON ORATORY SCHOLA CANTORUM
C‎HARLES COLE conductor

Music to illustrate the Golden Age: a selection of motets from sixteenth-century Spain culminating in Alonso Lobo’s great funerary ode for Philip II, Versa est in luctum.

J‎osquin des Prez
Missa Hercules Dux Ferrarie, Missa D'ung aultre amer & Missa Faysant regretz
T‎HE TALLIS SCHOLARS
P‎ETER PHILLIPS conductor

‘With this ninth and final release in our Josquin Mass cycle we come to three of his greatest works. Although all three Masses come roughly from his early middle age, together they form a perfect showcase for a genius who felt challenged to make each setting different.’ (Peter Phillips)

I bought the latter two of those issues yesterday and have started to work my way through them - so far the Missa Hecules etc and the works by Guerrero. Both albums are beautifully sung though OVPP enthusiasts might find the London Oratory Schola Cantorum rather too opulent.

It was something that popped up on YouTube based on my viewing history - I listen to the music of the troubadours and trouvères quite often. I am glad you enjoyed it.
