Josquin Desprez: Transfer in Mysteria

A revolutionary new project, recorded by ECM in 2011 includes 2 singers and 2 vihuelas. Conventionally this music is thought of as a cappella, but we know from the surviving intabulations that a far more common way of performing this repertoire was with instruments. In this programme, which will contain chant, a mass and motets, Anna Maria Friman and John Potter will be joined by Ariel Abramovich, Lee Santana and Jacob Heringman, a sound that probably hasn’t been heard since the 16th century.
