Josquin des Prez: Inviolata
Jacob Heringman (lute & vihuela)
Two decades following his first album of lute intabulations by the renaissance composer Josquin des Prez (the first album of its kind), celebrated lutenist Jacob Heringman returns to this rich but largely neglected part of the repertoire to present a new recording of intabulations for lute and vihuela.
In celebration of his 500th anniversary, Josquin is once more the composer behind these fascinating and compelling arrangements, and this programme explores further vocal music by this most revered of early music names, including Marian motets and realisations from his Missa de Beata Virgine. As well as employing sources of various sixteenth-century lutenist-composers, Jacob has included several of his own intabulations in this captivating programme.
