In his lifetime Josquin des Prez achieved a greater level of fame across Europe than perhaps any composer before him, and in death he cast a long shadow over the work of the following generation. To mark 500 years since his passing, the Renaissance Singers offers a selection of his emotive, contemplative and audaciously clever music.
Motets and chansons will be performed including
plus selections from Masses, including movements from Missa Pange Lingua and Missa L’homme armé sexti toni.
This concert was supplemented by an oniine workshop featuring recordings of the music performed in the concert on Sunday 7th November at 7pm followed by a live Q&A with David Allinson, to which all ticket holders are invited.
It is also possible to purchase tickets for the online event only.
