Commemorating 27th August 1521 – Josquin 500 weekend

Trailer for Pie memorie concert with the Binchois Consort

This Friday, 27th August at 6.45pm, we launch the online concert series in our Josquin 500 festival with ‘Pie Memorie’ our Valediction to Josquin in Voices and Viols. In this tribute to the dead composer we imagine Josquin’s friends, colleagues and admirers coming together to pay their funeral respects with viols and voices, perhaps in a canon’s house in his church of Condé sur Escaut, in songs and motets of lamentation and – finally – with Richafort’s profoundly moving Requiem, speeding his soul on to its salvation.

Josquin died on 27th August 1521 in Condé-sur-l’Escaut and left an endowment for the performance of his late motet, Pater noster at all general processions in the town when they passed in front of his house, stopping to place a wafer on the marketplace altar to the Holy Virgin. Pater noster may have been his last work. Our concert with the Binchois Consort features this wonderful piece of music at the end of the first half.
