La Rue (d. 1518)

This discography of Pierre de la Rue (c. 1460–1518), who is variously indexed under De la Rue, La Rue, and Rue is newly compiled, adopting the format of the Guillaume Du Fay and Josquin des Prez discographies previously posted on this website. I have consulted William Kempster’s list of his performing editions of La Rue’s works and have benefited from much assistance. https://pierredelaruescores787ad8.webflow.io/. Acknowledgment is due to Pierre‑F. Roberge and Todd McComb for a list of records containing La Rue’s music in www.medieval.org/emfaq. Michael Gray’s classical-discography.org has furnished many details.

Works are listed alphabetically in three groups: Masses, Motets and Songs. The recordings of each work are arranged chronologically, citing conductor, ensemble, date of recording if known, and timing if available; then the format of the recording (ac, 78, 45, 33, LP, 45LP, LP quad, MC, CD, SACD, DVD), the label and the issue number(s). Each recorded performance is indicated, if known, as: with instruments (w/i), 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.). Four securely authenticated Masses have not been recorded. The first seven recordings (through 1955) are numbered.

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