Tributes to Josquin Desprez
Few composers of any age have enjoyed the widespread admiration and unanimous praise of successive generations as Josquin Desprez. He is considered the greatest creator and innovator of musical composition during the Renaissance, and for some half a millennium his music has stood the test of time. He is remembered as much for his own works as for his lasting influence on those of his contemporaries and students, demonstrated in many of the compositions in tribute of 'the Master' featured in this programme. The programme's centrepiece is Jean Richafort's Requiem Mass, Missa pro defunctis, a tribute that employs several of Josquin's compositional devices.
The King's Singers once again demonstrate their versatility and trademark precision in this new programme devised by leading early-music scholar and conductor David Skinner.
“An unexplored, if slightly morbid Renaissance treasure trove, this CD presents memorials composed by Josquin’s colleagues after the Flemish master’s death...the most astonishing work is Jacquet de Mantua’s Dum vastos, weaving together five Josquin “hits”.” The Times, 6th April 2013 ****
“some of the shorter pieces grouped around it by composers who are very little known today contain the most striking music here, especially Hieronymus Vinders' seven-part O Mors Inevitabilis and Jacquet of Mantua's densely polyphonic Dum Vastos Adriae Fluctus. All the Kings' Singers' performances are admirably manicured – perhaps just a little too much so at times” The Guardian, 18th April 2013 ****

Desprez: Missa Ave maris stella
The WESER-RENAISSANCE ensemble of Bremen under its proven conductor Manfred Cordes dedicates itself to the grand master of polyphony – Josquin Desprez and his Marian Motets.
“[Manfred Cortes] has blended this collection of very distinctive voices into almost the perfect ensemble for Franco-Flemish polyphony, sounding smooth and luminous but simultaneously finely etched and colourfully varied...A terrific release.” International Record Review, March 2012
“The simplicity, purity and clarity of the singing here is immediately apparent from the opening track...Manfred Cordes has gathered here some of the finest exponents of European Early Music.” MusicWeb International, May 2012
