Josquin Desprez

1455 - August 27, 1521
born in Hainaut, Belgium, composed during the Renaissance period
Josquin Desprez (ca. 1455-1521) was a preeminent figure in Renaissance music, hailed by Martin Luther as the "Master of Notes" and regarded today as one of the first great Western composers. Born in Belgium or northern France, Josquin's early life is clouded with mystery and little is certain of his career until 1475, when he entered court service. His connection to the Sforza family brought him into royal and papal circles, and he presented a volume of his chansons to Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. Josquin's motets and masses are widely performed, and his Ave Maria is his most famous work. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

How can I not love the music of the guy I was named after? Second only to authentic Byzantine chant, in my opinion, for moving the soul toward the divine.

Desprez makes human voices part of the universe. For those who find it soporific may you in that sleepy state sense that awesome dimension.

If a lover of this music has NOT already introduced you to this, please listen at length; the sonic architecture matches the great cathedrals of the period, especially the shapes that swirl and oh! the stained glass!

Luther was right, he was the master of notes.

I recommend Josquin’s Missa Hercules Dux Ferrariae, especially the rapturous performance by A Sei Voci. This gorgeous music is revolutionar y , sounding more than a century ahead of its time. Stravinsky said Monteverdi was the first composer to whom we could relate personally. I say Josquin.

Just beautiful...

Josquin is easily my favorite pre-baroque composer. Ockeghem is pretty good too, but only in Josquin, in my opinion, can one hear the early fledgling beginnings of modern Western musical thought. I wouldn't be surprised if Bach could trace his musical roots to Josquin.

While the Renaissance was riddled with wars, disease, and even a mini ice-age, the romance, music, majestic buildings,an d art are among the high-points of human existance... even today. Josquin's music is an example of the balance that music has with the voice. Calming, restoring, peaceful.

Lovely music that brings back lovely memories of a choir tour of Europe and Turkey with the Princeton University Chamber Chorus. The late, great Prof. Walter Nollner brought out this music for us to sing. He predicted we'd learn to love it. He was right.
