ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Nicolas Gombert was born in the late 1400s near the thriving city of Lille, then part of Flanders. At that time, Flanders was part of the far-flung empire of Charles V, a territory based in Spain but including the formerly French Burgundian Flanders, Austria and the Spanish New World territories. Gombert's mastery of all the then-current elements of composition, starting with canonic imitation. Renaissance composers created musical flow and interplay by having voices take up a theme in turn, each voice layering some variant on top of the other voice's statement; modern-day rounds are on version of canonic imitation. How did Gombert pull this off? He had a great ear for harmonic motion and planned his music so that the chords implied by all the counterpoint lead from one harmonic state to the next, emphasizing and supporting the text. For large works like Missa auam pulchra es, he further organized each movement according to a common framework, in this case, one derived from Bauldeweyn's motet setting of the Song of Songs text Quam pulchra es.--exerts program album notes by Marc Vilain
