Josquin Remembered, with Andrew Griffiths
This Zoom session with Andrew Griffiths explores some of Josquin’s finest motets, through the lens of a very unusual tribute work by the composer Jacquet de Mantua. Published in 1554, Jacquet’s Dum vastos Adriae fluctus hints at the esteem in which Josquin’s music was still held fully a generation after his death. Its poem mentions Josquin by name, and alludes to the texts of five of his most notable motets. At each reminiscence, Jacquet introduces direct musical quotations from the appropriate Josquin setting, so that the whole work functions as an affectionate act of tribute to the older master. We shall be looking at, and singing along if you want to, all of these, as well as looking at what made Josquin’s music so important and influential for those that followed him.
