Binchois (d. 1460)

This discography of Gilles Binchois (Gilles de Binche) builds on the work first published in Fanfare in November 1981. It has been refreshed from the original records and newly reformatted to match the Guillaume Du Fay and Josquin des Prez discographies previously posted on this website. Additional entries, generally those that lack timings and verses, were found in www.medieval.org/emfaq, compiled by Pierre-F. Roberge and Todd McComb. Michael Gray’s website, Classical-discography.org, has provided additional details.

Works are listed alphabetically in three groups: Mass Movements, Motets and Songs. The recordings of each work are arranged chronologically, citing conductor, ensemble, date of recording if known, timing if available, and number of verses; then the format of the recording (ac, 78, 45, 33, LP, MC, CD, SACD), the label, and the issue number(s). Each recorded performance is indicated, if known, as sung with instruments (w/i), sung with no instruments (n/i), or instrumental only. Album titles of mixed collections are added with CD disc/track number (t.) or LP side/band number (b.). The first eight recordings (nine works, through 1953) are numbered.

In the same series: discographies of composers and subjects ranging from the 12th to the 16th centuries.
