Paul Van Nevel presents a concert steeped in melancholy and farewells, with chansons and motets by Josquin himself and by Nicolas Gombert, Antoine Brumel and even a contemporary composer. The German Jörg Schnepel, who studied Renaissance lute with Paul O’Dette and is thoroughly familiar with the musical vocabulary of the Renaissance, has been commissioned by AMUZ and Huelgas Ensemble to compose an elegy for the death of Josquin. A world premiere at Laus Polyphoniae 2021!
