Product Notes

In 2006 Maurice Bourbon and La Chapelle de Flandres decided to remedy a significant gap by recording the complete masses of Josquin Desprez, thereby honoring this emblematic figure in the history of music. The Fortuna desperate and Une musque de Biscaye masses are included in this seventh volume of the complete masses, entitled "Josquin and Spain." These considerable works, each more than 33 minutes long, are masterfully written, and were clearly composed at the height of Josquin's powers. Maurice Bourbon took part in analyzing and executing the works, as he has done since the project's inception, but chose for this recording to hand the job of conducting the choirs over to the young Juliette de Massy, who led the ensembles Biscantor and Metamorphoses. These combined forces enabled the performers to recreate a variety of tessitura, to bring out certain themes, and to ensure that breathing would not interrupt long notes. The Missa Fortuna desperate is based on the 3-voice song of the same name, and is attributed to Antoine Busnois, one of Josquin's contemporaries.
