Josquin Lebloitte (nicknamed Josquin des Prez) a Franco-Flemish composer (about 1450- 1521), has been described by many as being on a par with Michelangelo in architecture, painting and sculpture and to be the first master of the high Renaissance style of polyphonic vocal music that was emerging during his lifetime. Josquin wrote both sacred and secular music, and in all of the significant vocal forms of the age. Join the Chorale and enjoy the wonderful melodies and harmonies that are the roots of the music we know today. The Chorale will be joined by special guest instrumentalists and soloists who will bring this music of the ages to life.
