The King’s Singers most recent album is now on sale.
Few composers of any period have enjoyed the widespread admiration and unanimous praise of successive generations as Josquin Desprez. He is considered to be the greatest creator and innovator of musical composition during the Renaissance, and for some half a millennium his music has stood the test of time.
Centred around the beautiful Missa pro defunctis by Jean Richafort, the album explores tributes written to the great Master created after his death by his pupils and colleagues, who, themselves, owed much of their skill and fame to Josquin’s teachings.
This new programme devised by leading early-music scholar and conductor David Skinner, who prepared new editions of the Renaissance works for this recording.
The album is now available to purchase here.
