ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Working without a conductor, the intensely collaborative singers of Stile Antico have won acclaim as one of the world’s most vibrant and expressive vocal ensembles. They return to BEMF for a virtual performance celebrating the North American release of their new CD for Decca Classics, titled The Golden Renaissance: Josquin des Prez.
The first composer to have his works widely published, Josquin enjoyed great international renown, and his stunningly beautiful music was hugely influential in the development of the High Renaissance style. Marking the 500th anniversary of the composer’s death, this sumptuous program of highlights from the recording features excerpts from Josquin’s superb Missa Pange lingua and several of his best-loved motets and chansons, from the whimsical El Grillo (The Cricket) to the plangent Mille regretz (A Thousand Regrets).
This program is presented in partnership with the Morgan Library & Museum, New York.
