York Early Music Festival

Cappella Pratensis & I Fedeli

Jacob Obrecht and Jacobus Barireau

Wim Diepenhorst (organ, regal) Josué Meléndez & Catherine Motuz (artistic direction) directed by Stratton Bull
Cappella Pratensis & I Fedeli

Obrecht and Barbireau, two prominent representatives of Franco-Flemish polyphony with connections to the Church of Our Lady in Antwerp around 1500 (today’s Antwerp Cathedral), come together in this concert. In his masses and motets Obrecht was an innovative user of the cantus firmus technique in which polyphonic fabric weaves around an existing melody, as in his celebratory Missa Sub tuum praesidium. Osculetur me, Barbireau’s only surviving motet, completes the programme.

These concerts are presented in association with the Alamire Foundation and AMUZ with support from the Flanders Government.
