Heinrich Isaac’s “Missa Virgo prudentissima” stands out as a very rare work in the panorama of the Ordinary settings composed at the turn of the sixteenth century. Its monumental sound, linked to the six-voice texture - mostly used for timbral variety, but occasionally for fullness of sound - the imaginative use of its cantus firmus, and its mature and sure contrapuntal writing make it one of the most successful works by the Flemish master.
