Jean Richafort: A Requiem for Josquin | Founded in Vienna in 2004, the 5 men of Cinquecento are some of Europe’s most highly regarded Renaissance vocalists.

The centerpiece of their concert is an exquisite tribute from his student, Jean Richafort, the Requiem in memoriam Josquin des Prez, alongside some of Josquin’s own compositions that Richafort reverently references.

Length: 1 hour
