2021 sees the 500th anniversary of the death of Josquin Des Pres, the most celebrated composer of his day. Dominique Visse and the Ensemble Clément Janequin are recording a selection of his chansons from two of the most important editions of his works, Susato’s in 1545 and Attaignant’s in 1549, for the Ricercar label.
These editions bear witness to the diversity of Josquin’s chanson writing, but above all to the melancholy and sorrow so present in his works, and are clearly tributes to this great composer, as is also evident in the two Déplorations on his death included on this recording, Musæ Jovis by Nicolas Gombert and O mors inevitabilis by Hieronymus Vinders, both from the Susato edition.
The programme, which includes a majority of chansons that are new to the Ensemble’s repertoire, endeavours to present a Josquin legacy, a post mortem illustration of his chanson œuvre, a remembering of his musical genius taken from these two editions, but is also Dominique and the Ensemble’s own Déploration on the death of Josquin, the culmination of 40 years exploring the Renaissance chanson.
