List of works
- From the Wikipedia page:
"Only one work is attributed with certainty to Alamire, a four-part instrumental piece Tandernaken op den Rijn; however his evident skill and experience as a composer suggests that many of the anonymous works of the time may be his."
This esteemed copyist was responsible for manuscripts preserving many Renaissance compositions:
- The Spy's Choirbook, recording by Alamire ensemble, David Skinner directing, of Royal 8 G. vii
