Music for Corpus Christi

Just now I'm listening to a CD of Josquin Desprez' Missa Pange Lingua sung by Ensembles Clément Janequin and Organum, under the direction of Marcel Pérès. The clarity of their singing, and the beauty of the music, is stunning: it's a favourite CD of mine. What a pity that, though it includes the Proper, plus an O salutaris hostia (used at the Elevation at Mass) and the Pange lingua, it doesn't include the Sequence...
