Josquin 500: Music of Josquin, Palestrina, and Byrd

Celebrate the season in high style as Peter Phillips leads the legendary voices of The Tallis Scholars in a program honoring the incomparable composer Josquin des Prez on the 500th anniversary of his death in 1521. With thousands of concerts across the globe—including three decades of visits to Boston—these singers have established themselves as one of Early Music’s truly essential ensembles with performances of unparalleled clarity. The centerpiece of their program is Josquin’s monumental and sublimely beautiful Missa Hercules Dux Ferrarie, which is interwoven with motets by Renaissance masters Byrd and Palestrina.
