The life of Nicholas Ludford (ca. 1490-1557), also styled Nycolace Ludfoorthe, is no mystery today. This son of a musician from the Fraternity of St Nicholas was destined from a young age to a distinguished career in music. Unlike other musicians of his time, who set off to develop their curriculum vitae in distant lands, our composer made his way within the very restricted confines of Westminster, the political and ecclesiastical centre of London and of England during the Renaissance. While Nicholas Ludford benefits today from renewed interest, notably thanks to the works and recordings of David Skinner, some of his works are yet to be discovered.
Less exuberant than the Masses Lapidaverunt Stephanum or Benedicta, the Lady Masses, dedicated to the Virgin and designed to be sung in the small chapels of great ecclesiastical institutions, are attractive in their singularity. Among the eleven extant complete masses by Nicholas Ludford the unusual musico-liturgical interest of the seven masses contained in British Museum MSS Roy. App. 45-48 has singled them out for especial attention. For instance, they comprise the only complete system of daily votive "Masses of the Virgin" remaining in English music; they include Alleluias and Sequences of which English music has all too few in polyphonic settings; they are based on "cantus firmi" of quite remarkable interest belonging to a special repertory which has come to be known as “squares”; and they are of a type known as alternatim in which sections for a soloist alternate in performance with sections of three-part polyphony.
The implications of the last two features combine to make the matter of performance something of a problem, for it is the curious character of the “squares” as soloist’s material which first raises doubts as to their intended mode of presentation, whether they were to be sung, or played on the organ either monophonically as they stand or as cantus firmi for improvisation. © Paraty

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.
