In Flanders Fields Volume 69 - La Declinaison de la Femme
Around Margaret of Austrian
The theme of the music on this CD is the many facets of women and the chosen songs reflect this. The compositions used were preserved in two song books from the library of Margaret of Austria (1480-1530). Encantar was founded in 2006 by four young singers and concentrates mainly on religious works by Flemish, Spanish and Italian polyphonists.

Die Spinne im Netz (The Spider in the Web)
Music from Nuremberg Prints of the 16th Century.
Julian Podger (tenor)
Ensemble Musicke & Mirth - Irene Klein (treble & alto viol), Silvia Tecardi (treble, alto & tenor viol), Jane Achtman (tenor & bass viol), Wim Maeseele (lute)
At the beginning of the 16th century Nuremberg (“The spider in the web”) was a northern European centre in which many threads of international music life came together. Early on Nuremberg had established itself as a centre of book printing. The first printing-offices that occupied themselves seriously with the printing of music, however, were those of Hieronymus Formschneider and Johannes Petreius. Most of the pieces on this recording are taken from these collections of three-part music. They contain international repertoire, including old masterworks such as Caecox and Tandernaken by Alexander Agricola, but also arrangements of German folk songs and ballads, as well as French compositions and more recent Italian forms.
