This program will paint a broad picture of musical composition during the lifetime of Josquin Desprez. We will explore the great Franco-Flemish madrigal tradition using voices and viols, and venture to Spain—inspired by Ottoman tunes treated by court composers also connected to Charles V—and to England—to chart the influences of this music on the great consort composers at the court of Elizabeth I.
