Josquin album released
We’re delighted to announce the launch of our debut recording on the Decca Classics label, the first in a trilogy of albums to mark three major composer anniversaries: Josquin (2021), Byrd (2023) and Palestrina (2025).
Recorded during lockdown, our disc is structured around the superb Missa Pange lingua, which forms the centrepiece of a varied sequence of motets and chansons. Some of Josquin’s best-loved music is included – Ave Maria, virgo serena and Inviolata, integra et casta es Maria – as well as the premiere recording of the chanson Vivrai je tousjours. Two works dedicated to Josquin’s memory, by Hieronymus Vinders and Jacquet de Mantua, complete our programme.
