This great mass, though it is Jacob Obrecht's most famous work, is not often recorded. It's performed here by the vocal ensemble the Sound and the Fury, on their recording "Jacob Obrecht 1," which also includes the equally brilliant Missa 'Rose playsante'. They also have made fine recordings of Gombert, Ockeghem, and Fauges.
