Dufay's L'Homme armé Mass more than likely predates Busnoys's setting, contrary to Richard Taruskin's conclusion (1984). The view of Busnoys as emulator is supported by the fact that his Mass is the more complex of the two, a trait common in emulations. Busnoys's inversion canon runs through the whole of Agnus I and III. In addition, he puts his inversion in the bass, adding another degree of complexity which points to emulation.
