  1. I have known the two Couperin Organ Masses for well over half a century, but for much of that time they were a puzzle to me. 21 beautiful movements in each, but how did this ragbag count as AN organ mass? At that time it was the custom for every performer and every recording artist to play only the organ movements. I later learned that the liturgical setting had originally consisted of plain-chant, but the custom changed so that the first line of the plain-chant was sung and the organist then continued with music based on that chant, often so that a knowledgeable member of the congregation could mentally sing-along with the music. So, I would expect that each track of a good recording would begin with the plain-chant and then continue with the organ. What I find is that recent recordings begin with organ music, and with a short section of plain-chant at the end of the track. So what is going on?
