Format: CD

On "The Landscape of the Polyphonists," the Huelgas Ensemble and Paul Van Nevel present the intense melancholic and imitative style of Franco-Flemish polyphonic music on two fantastic CDs, exploring how the music was shaped by the particular character of the landscape in which each composer spent his life. twenty-four selected landscape photographs and images of Flemish cathedrals and their surroundings transport the listener to the world of the Flemish lands of the Renaissance as the Huelgas Ensemble performs the works of extraordinary composers such as Antoine Busnois, Nicholas Gombert, Josquin Desprez, as well as lesser known but equally remarkable composers such as Josquin Baston, Jean l'Héritier, and Jean Mouton. The audience can directly experience the complex interaction between historical landscapes, architecture and music in their respective places of origin.
