Josquin’s Legacy at Ely Cathedral

We present four short recitals exploring music from the courts of Renaissance Italy through the lens of Josquin’s 500th anniversary, filmed at Ely Cathedral.

About the music

Courts in renaissance Italy were meeting places for some of the greatest musicians from across Europe. The Court at Ferrara became a leading centre: many of the Franco-Flemish school passed through its gates and perhaps the most notable of these is Josquin. Our June Sessions series contextualises some of the ‘jewels in the crown’ of Italian Renaissance repertoire by tracing themes of pedagogy and patronage in northern Italy over 150 years, featuring works by Ockeghem, Brumel, Josquin, Mouton and L'Héritier.

  • Recital 1: featuring works by Ockeghem and Josquin.
  • Recital 2: featuring works by Divitis, Brumel, Févin and Mouton.
  • Recital 3: featuring works by Verdelot, Mouton and Josquin.
  • Recital 4: featuring works by Brumel, Compère and L'Héritier.

Previously known as our ‘June Sessions’ series, which premiered in June 2021.

With thanks to the Dean and Chapter of Ely Cathedral. Filmed by G6 Studio.
