1 review for Josquin des Prez: sixteenth-century lute settings (2000)

  1. John Edward (verified owner)

    This is one of the best lute recordings. The repertoire and the performance are exceptional, as well as the recording and engineering. All of the pieces are intabulations, arrangements, lute solos, based on vocal pieces by Josquin des Prez. Such pieces were a mainstay of the lute repertoire in the Renaissance but have been sadly overlooked by modern lutenists. Thanks to Jacob Heringman for giving new life to this music. Josquin des Prez was considered greatest composer of his age and is widely considered to be the first master of the high Renaissance style. Josquin’s composition were popular during his life, which may be the reason so many of his compositions were set for the lute. There are Intabulations of vocal compositions by Josquin’s contemporaries as well. Lutenist, Eugen Dombois recorded an intabluation of Innsbruck, ich muss dich lassen by Heinrich Isaac many years ago and it is nearly as much of a miniature masterpiece as the intabulation of Josquin’s Mille regretz recorded on this CD. On can only hope for another recording of this type of repertoire from Jacob Herrringman.
