Music for the October session

Orlande de Lassus - Jacob Clemens non Papa - Josquin des Prez

Next Saturday I am bringing Renaissance music from the Low Country.Three of the most influential and popular composers of the era hailed from the Netherlands. All the parts are interesting. We'll also have another chance to turn on our inner metronomes and play without bar lines. Below are links to the music, and also links to hear it played. It will benefit everybody to hear these links, and those of us not confident in sight reading may want to listen and follow along with the music prior to our session. See you next week!!
