Josquin des Prez was regarded as the greatest composer of his generation, but the talent pool of his contemporaries was wide and deep. Convivium will explore the musical languages of several of Josquin’s compatriots, all celebrated in their own time but less well-known today: Brumel, la Rue, Isaac, Obrecht, Agricola, Pipelare, and more.
