Product Description

Product Description

Josquin Desprez is widely recognized as the greatest of the Renaissance master musicians. He set the standard for the various compositional techniques borrowed and utilized by most composers of his generation and beyond, and became an iconic figure whose art had captivated musicians and scholars for centuries. This recording centres around some of Josquin s earliest works, and, in particular, his fascination with the D ung aultre amer rondeau composed by his teacher Johannes Ockeghem. Also included are some of his most popular motets, and chansons performed here for solo voice (Clare Wilkinson) and renaissance harp (Andrew Lawrence-King).

Two further Obsidian albums are available through, they are;

Thomas Tomkins: These Distracted Times (ASIN B000Y11M48)

Philippe Verdelot: Madrigals for a Tudor King (ASIN B000Z6Y4DI

5.0 out of 5 stars "Brand new" Josquin is a triumph 8 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
It is rare to come across a recording of Josquin that is as clean and bracing as Alamire's new CD. Listening to the clarity of the musical phrasing, and the way in which the meaning of the words are conveyed, it is as if brand new music is being sung, without generations of accumulated conventions. Of course, that is helped by the choice of pieces: not for Alamire and David Skinner the two or three conventional choices in the Josquin repertoire, and even when a piece is familiar from other recordings, Alamire's cool passion wins out (compare "Ava Maria" here with the Hilliard's recording on the "Motets and Chansons" CD).

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting & varied collection of Josquin works 15 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an interesting & varied collection of Josquin works. Kicking off with the Ockeghem tune "D'ung aultre amer", there follows Josquin's early and somewhat short mass based around it. The majority of the disc consists of a selection of motets and chansons displaying Josquin's talent as a composer across a range of styles, including a second Sanctus and a motet also based around "D'ung aultre".

The ensemble Alamire directed by David Skinner deliver this relatively unusual Josquin repertoire well, though the recorded sound feels a little "distant". The highlight for me is the chanson "Adieu mes amours", with soloist Clare Wilkinson accompanied by harpist Andrew Lawrence-King. Here is Josquin with one foot firmly in the medieval period, a bridge, nay, a Colossus spanning that era and the Renaissance.

Digipak with booklet containing notes plus full sung texts with translations.
