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 Amazon.co.uk, they are;

Thomas Tomkins: These Distracted Times (ASIN B000Y11M48)

Philippe Verdelot: Madrigals for a Tudor King (ASIN B000Z6Y4DI

About the Artist

ALAMIRE

Founded by David Skinner in 2005, Alamire is made up of some of the finest consort singers in the UK and exist in order to explore and promote the compositional processes behind the great masterworks, and lesser-known works, of the late medieval and early modern periods. Other recordings on the Obsidian label include the madrigals of Philippe Verdelot from the Newberry-Oscott partbooks, which in 1526 were a gift from the city of Florence to Henry VIII, and a recording of the church and chamber music of Thomas Tomkins with the Choir of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, and the viol consort Fretwork. Other projects include sound installations for art galleries and soundtracks for television and film.

David Skinner is known primarily for his combined role as a researcher and performer of early music, and is Fellow and Director of Music at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, and an Affiliated Lecturer in the Faculty of Music. He teaches historical and practical topics from the medieval and renaissance periods. From 1997 to 2001 he was a Postdoctoral Fellow of the British Academy at Christ Church, Oxford (where he was a Choral Scholar from 1989 to 1994), and was the Lecturer in Music at Magdalen College, Oxford, from 2001 to 2006. At Cambridge he conducts the Choir of Sidney Sussex College, with whom he has toured and made professional recordings. He has published widely on music and musicians of early Tudor England, and his most recent projects include the collected works of Nicholas Ludford (Early English Church Music, 2003 & 2005) and The Arundel Choirbook (Duke of Norfolk: Roxburghe Club, 2003). He is currently editing the Latin church music of John Sheppard for publication in 2008, and co-authoring a book on music and the English Reformation.

Andrew Lawrence-King is recognized as one of Europe's leading early music artists, and is currently leader of The Harp Consort. He has recorded with nearly all the leading specialist ensembles, and has made over 100 recordings of music ranging from Troubadour lyrics (with Paul Hillier for ECM) to 15th and 16th century repertoire (Gothic Voices) to new music for early harp (John Paul Jones Amores Pasados with The Harp Consort for DHM). Also on record are two accounts with The Sixteen and the Taverner Players - of the Handel Harp Concerto.
