announcing Inviolata: Josquin des Prez

My new solo recording is now in the online shop.

I’m delighted to announce that my new solo recording is finally ready, after nearly ten years of work on it, off and on. It was recorded by Anthony Robb in the wonderful acoustic of St. Cuthbert’s Chapel, Ushaw College, near Durham, UK, and has been released on Inventa Records, a division of Resonus Classics. The wonderful cover image is by Tom Barr. You can now find the disc ready for pre-order in my online shop. It will be shipped during the week of the 26th of October 2020. This is a project close to my heart, as was the first Josquin album, released 20 years ago. The beautiful and peaceful music of Josquin has as much to say 500 years after his death, in this time of uncertainty and hardship for so many, as it did when it first appeared. I hope that listeners will find some solace and refuge in it.

Here is a sneak preview video.

  1. Dear Jakob, I am listening to Inviolata which I received some days ago, thank you: so nice to have this follow up to your previous Josquin disc. One question, did you publish your own intabulations?

    1. Hi Enrico,
      Thank you for your kind words. I have not published my own intabulations, but it is something I’m hoping to do at some point in the future. If there’s a particular one you’re interested in, I may be able to send you the music.

  2. Jacob, I have this CD and your Siena Lute Book recording, which I have listened to a million times. There are notable lutenists in this world, but you and the other Jacob (haha!) are number one in my opinion. The sensitivity of your playing is unmatched (and I don’t know why other musicians don’t play like that!). Thank you.

    1. Thank you very much for your kind words!
