Josquin: the first name that comes to mind when one discusses the masters of Renaissance. In this now classic recording, Philippe Herreweghe offers an exceptionally rich portrait of his music, midway between the liturgical (Stabat Mater) and the quasi-secular (certain motets).
Canons, echo and repetitive effects, all manner of counterpoint: every element in this music contributes to a valorisation of the sung text which was soon to cuminate in the late 16th-century madrigal.
Stabat mater dolorosa
