InAlto & Cappella Mariana

Popularis anni iubilus. New Year at the Court of Rudolf II

Cappella Mariana from Prague and the Belgian ensemble InAlto focus on the music at the Imperial Court in Prague around 1600. Carolus Luython (1557-1620), born in Antwerp, worked as a court composer for Emperor Rudolf II. His Popularis anni iubilus is a collection of motets dedicated to the episcopal ordination of Rudolf II’s brother, Archduke Ernest. The work was actually intended for a new year’s celebration, with themes such as the many virtues of the emperor and the beginning of the new earthly and celestial year.
