They Might Be Giants: Josquin and the Renaissance
- Saturday, October 29, 8PM, St. Louis King of France Catholic Church, 7601 Burnet Rd.
- Sunday, October 30, 3PM, First Presbyterian Church, 8001 Mesa Drive
Josquin des Prez was the most renowned composer of his day but he was really just a giant among giants. In this concert we will immerse ourselves in the music of Josquin and three of his Lowlands contemporaries: Brumel, Compère, and Pierre de la Rue, who were mentioned in the famous ode upon the death of Okeghem, their musical father. Each of these magnificent composers contributed a unique voice to the sacred and secular repertoires of the day. A small chamber choir, viols, and lute will perform the music of these titans.
