De Beata Virgine
Josquin’s Masses in the Liber quindecim missarum

This performance presents the parts from the ordinary of the three masses composed by Josquin des Prez that are selected in the first printed choir book of the history, that is the famous Liber quindecim missarum (Rome, Andrea Antico, 1516). In other parts of the mass, pieces from the Cancionero de Palacio and the proper Josquin are also used. The performance aims to recreate historically informed practices with a small group (one singer and three wind instruments players) seeking a sound very close to the music of that period.

La Danserye has taken part in numerous festivals and early music series in Spain, France, Holland, Colombia and Mexico.
