Whilst some records suggest that he may not have been quite the all-round jolly good chap and decent bloke he is often portrayed as, musically Johannes Ockeghem is certainly a towering colossus of the Renaissance. This disc presents several pieces by his contemporaries which are direct or indirect tributes to him, some of which I have never seen recorded before.

First is a piece by Pierre de la Rue, entitled "Plorer, gemir, crier", his lament on the death of Ockeghem, above the tenor line from the Requiem.

Following this is Jacob Obrecht's mass "Sicut Rosa Spinam" which has been postulated as being in the memory of Ockeghem, though other scholars suggest the date of composition is during Ockeghem's lifetime. What is not in doubt however is that Obrecht borrows themes from both Ockeghem's Missa "Mi-mi" and his motet "Intemerata Dei Mater", thus acknowledging his debt to that great composer.

Thirdly we have one of the most famous, and rightly so, compositions of the Renaissance, Josquin Desprez's deeply felt outpouring of grief "Nymphes Des Bois", his setting of the text of Jean Molinet's poem "Deploration sur la mort de Johannes Ockeghem" above a Requiem tenor.

Antoine Busnois' motet "In Hydraulis" pays tribute to Ockeghem as the "supreme master of melody" and "true image of Orpheus".

Finally, Johannes Lupus in his "Ergone conticuit" laments the departing of Ockeghem with the words of Desiderius Erasmus: "So has it now fallen silent, that voice once so noble, the golden voice of Ockeghem?

You'll Be the One Weeping, Wailing, Crying ... 31 Oct. 2012
By Giordano Bruno - Published on
Format: Audio CD
... if you don't acquire this recording before it goes out of stock. It's the apex and acme of polyphonic singing, as flawless as any performance on CD. The Voix D'Or (Golden Voice) of the CD title is that of Johannes Ockeghem (?-1497), but the designation could be applied to any of the ten voices of the ensemble Diabolus in Musica. Ockeghem himself was acclaimed as a mellifluous basso profundo and the bass lines of his polyphony certainly expanded the expressive role of the lowest voices in the music of his many disciples. The male singers of Diabolus have rich, vibrant voices, perfectly suited for the tenor-centered bottom-loaded ensemble balance of "Franco-Flemish" polyphony, while the two women mezzo-sopranos sing with lovely restraint and delicacy. It's the ensemble balance, plus the sure sense of phrasing, that makes this performance exceptionally eloquent.

Johannes Ockeghem didn't invent modern music single-handedly, though he probably has more claim to that distinction than anyone in history except Claudio Monteverdi. But Ockeghem's fame and influence were huge; nearly every known composer of his generation and the next -- Obrecht, De La Rue, Busnois, Desprez, Mouton, Brumel, Compere, Prioris, Agricola, Lupus, Regis, De Monte, Richafort, Moulu, Barbireau, Tinctoris, Lourdault, Gombert, all of The Greatest Generation of music, almost all of them Flemings -- paid Ockeghem the sincerest tribute of imitation. None of the five compositions on this CD are attributed to Ockeghem himself, but you'll hear his voice throughout.

Jacob Obrecht's Missa Sicut Rosa Spinam is constructed around two quotations of music by Ockeghem, the bass line of the Kyrie of Ockeghem's Missa Mi-mi as well as the superius of Ockeghem's motet Intemerata Dei Mater. The four motets - by Pierre De La Rue, Josquin Desprez, Antoine Busnoys, and Johannes Lupus - are all explicit tributes or elegies to Ockeghem and include his name in their texts. Ockeghem has been credited with composing the first, or close to the first, Requiem Mass, a genre that expanded the "territory" of polyphony almost as much as the Louisiana Purchase expanded the young American Republic.

Josquin's motet/chanson, in Latin and French, is deservedly among his best-known pieces; you'll find it on a dozen or more CDs. It's a moving piece on every level but don't fail to read the text. Here's the concluding phrase:
"Dress in clothes of mourning,
Josquin, Pierre, Brumel, Compere,
and weep great tears from your eyes:
you have lost your good father!
May he rest in peace. Amen"
