Format: Audio CD
Josquin Desprez (sometimes spelled des Pres) was considered the greatest composer of his time (1440-1521), and his stature has never diminished ever since.(*) Among his limited surviving works, his masses are most thoroughly studied, and 16 of them have already been recorded.(**) This CD under review reveals another side of the great Josquin, and focuses on his secular output.

Let me declare my conclusion upfront: This CD is outstanding! Indeed, it's only by a stroke of luck that I decided to purchase this CD. I have never heard of the group Musica Antiqua of London,(***) and the provincial title "Master of Musicians" almost sent me away. (The producer should think more highly of the potential buyers!) However, I was lured by the last track, the only recording available of "Lementatio super morte Josquin des Pres" by Josquin's student Vinders, and decided to give it a try. A pleasant surprise as it turns out: I have listened to the CD straight, twice in fact.

What's so attractive about this CD? First of all, the superb programming: It contains many of the Josquin's famous secular works, such as Mille regrets, El grillo, Adieu mes amours, and presents each alongside his contemporaries' settings of the same text. For example, there are 5 settings to the text of "Mille regretz" by Gerle, Josquin, an anonymous composer and 2 by Susato. Other composers featured in the disc are no less than Heinrich Isaac, Alexander Agricola and Adrian Willaert, among others. The inventive programming greatly enriches these otherwise short pieces, each ranging mostly 1-3 minutes. (There are no less than 37 tracks in this CD!)

Secondly, the performance is quite enjoyable.
