Josquin Desprez: Marian Motets - Monteverdi-Chor Hamburg Men's Voices/Jürgen Jürgens
KHCD-2013-011FL (STEREO) - Josquin Desprez: Marian Motets - Monteverdi-Chor Hamburg Men's Voices/Jürgen Jürgens - Josquin Desprez (ca. 1440-ca. 1521) occupies an important position among the figures in cultural history at the time the Middle Ages gave way to the Renaissance. Highly extolled by his contemporaries, honored by his successors, he decisively influenced musical development. This CD, derived from a near-mint Archiv LP recorded in 1971, contains a selection of Motets based on Marian texts, composed during various times during the master's creative periods. The recording features a choir of only male voices, with the addition of a colle-parte instrumental group, following the long-lost practice of church choirs of the past.
