The Incomparable Josquin: Voices and Renaissance Winds

The Collegium presents some of the greatest works of the greatest composer of his generation, Josquin des Prez (c.1450-1521). Music includes the four-voice Ave Maria, a work that came to be a model motet for generations, and Josquin's last composition, his Missa Pange Lingua. The program is rounded out by instrumental selections performed on Renaissance winds, directed by Daniel Meyers.
