Stile Antico launches a trilogy of recordings on the Decca label with a portrait of Josquin des Prez, marking the 500th anniversary of the composer’s death. The superb Missa Pange lingua forms the centrepiece of a varied sequence of motets and chansons, including some of Josquin’s best loved music – 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 this sumptuous programme. .. JOSQUIN DES PREZ

Josquin des Prés, who died exactly five centuries ago (1521) in Condé-sur-l’Escaut (in today’s Hauts de France region near Valenciennes), is one of the great figures of the Franco-Flemish school and one of the greatest composers in the history of Western music. The reputation of this musician-traveller spread throughout Europe during his lifetime and he was known in Burgundy, France and throughout Italy. He was a member of the Pope’s Chapel in Rome, after having assumed offices in Milan and Ferrara in the service of the Sforza family. Widely distributed thanks to the invention of the printing press, his music has survived, in the form of over two hundred and forty works.

This album is part of a trilogy of recordings planned by Decca to constitute a portrait of Josquin des Prés according to current practices and knowledge. Recorded in July 2020 by the Stile Antico ensemble, it presents master works: the sublime Messe Pange lingua, with motets and songs, including Vivrai-je tousjours, recorded here for the first time. Coming from the English choral tradition of Oxford and Cambridge, Stile Antico offers us a decanted vision, out of time and stripped of any sensuality, as if to better emphasise the abstraction of Josquin’s harmonic research. – François Hudry
