On his newest album Love Streams, critically acclaimed noise mastermind Tim Hecker was heavily inspired by the 15th Century scores of Josquin Des Prez. Well it just so happens that we love Tim Hecker and archives have an abundance of original scores from Des Prez. Therefore, we thought we’d share with you some of his beautiful manuscripts. Love Streams is out April 8 via 4AD.
