In darkness let me dwell, for voice, lute & bass viol (A Musicall Banquet), (1610) Steven Rickards, counter-tenor Dorothy Linell, lute John Dowland’s songs (or ayres, as they were termed) for voice and lute represent the culmination of a long tradition in England, where such pieces were held in high esteem throughout the sixteenth century. The bulk of Dowland’s contribution to this rich repertoire consists of three books published simply as a First, Second, and Third Book of Songs, and a further collection published in 1612 under the title A Pilgrimmes Solace. The First Book appeared in 1597.

Vor 500 Jahren starb Josquin Desprez, der vielleicht größte Komponist der Renaissance und schon zu Lebzeiten ein Musiker von europäischem Rang. Seine Musik spricht uns heute noch an – in ihrer Ausdruckskraft, ihrer Tiefe und Experimentierlust. SWR2 widmet Josquin am Ostermontag einen ganzen Themenabend. – Teil 1 – Teil 2 Josquins Messen

Josquin Desprez – der „Fürst der Musik“

Die Zeitgenossen nannten ihn „Fürst der Musik“ – Josquin Desprez war der vielleicht größte Komponist der Renaissance, Sänger an der Päpstlichen Kapelle, Lieblingskomponist von Martin Luther und von vielen Reichen und Mächtigen Europas. Notenverleger nutzten seine Popularität und mogelten ihm auch gerne das eine oder andere fremde Werk unter. Wo Josquin draufsteht, ist also nicht unbedingt Josquin drin.

Was zeichnet seine Musik aus und was fasziniert uns heute daran, 500 Jahre später? Unser Themenabend mit Josquin-Kenner*innen geht diesen Fragen nach und bringt Josquins wichtigste Werke zum Klingen.
