Without the help of blaring drums or castanets, culture-filled aesthete Paul van Nevel gives the opportunity to hear the music that Christopher Columbus heard during his travels and adventurous life. This has resulted in a rigorous selection of (many unknown) a capella works, by Italian and Spanish composers from the late 15th and early 16th centuries. Beginning with childhood memories of Christopher Columbus (a carnival song evoking an erotic joke about chimney sweeps), the album ends with pieces by Agricola most likely heard by the navigator at the end of his final voyage in 1506. This virtual musical journey begins in 15th century Venice and reaches the court of Ferdinand and Isabella in Madrid, Seville, Cordoba and Valladolid. This offers an exciting programme benefitting from the exceptional quality of singers of the Huelgas Ensemble, specialised in medieval and Renaissance polyphony and founded in 1971 by Paul van Nevel. © François Hudry/Qobuz

While we don't know quite how Jacob Clemens got his nickname of "non Papa" – some see it as a sign of his reformist sympathies, others as an indication of his rather dissolute life, while the majority of commentators are still scratching their heads – we know enough about his life to confirm that it was indeed quite dissolute. One of his employers wrote that he was a "great drunkard and an ill-liver"; a contract stipulated that he had to live "per modum probae", that is, decently. But the fact is that over the course of his too-short career – he died at the age of 40, around 1555 – he had to his name 15 masses, as many magnificats, 233 motets (almost all religious) a good hundred songs, be they in French or Dutch, 160 psalms in Dutch, the "Souterliedekens", generally using popular songs as their "cantus firmus". In short, it's a magnificent body of work, in which the equally magnificent Huelgas Ensemble (a Belgian formation, despite the Hispanic-sounding name) was spoiled for choice: so much so that they have plumped for several works from each of these categories: songs in French, Souterliedekens, motets, and extracts from masses, all offering the listener a large sample of his extravagant and sumptuous art, from Josquin to Lassus – and the latter was greatly influenced by Jacob Clemens, as it happens. © SM/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen 5 de Diapason
The French printer-publisher Christophe Plantin (1520-1589), who has lived in Antwerp more or less all of his adult life, is not just anyone. He is credited with some two thousand publications, an absolutely astounding number in this era in which everything was done by hand, including the press done page after page, and yet he’s managed to publish a new book approximately every week during his 34-year career, with more than a thousand copies for each—up to eight thousand copies for his Hebraic Bible. His workshop included sixteen hand presses, served by thirty-two printers, twenty typographers, three proofreaders and many servants of all kinds: a true company. His opus magnum is a Bible in five languages: Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Aramaean and Syriac. He is also credited with works in the fields of medicine, botany, cartography, anatomy, mathematics, religion of course… And yes, also music! Because he published several major partitions, gathering contemporary sacred works from Jacobus De Kerle, Palestrina, Philippus De Monte, as well as several chansonniers gathering pieces from Andries Pervenage, Claude Le Jeune and colleagues. It is in this incredible stock that the beautiful Ensemble Huelgas drew, alternating between profane and sacred, choral and soloist, a sort of condensed musical Renaissance oscillating between ferocious Catholics (Antwerp was then under Spanish domination, and Philip II was very touchy about religion) and rebellious Protestants. © SM/Qobuz

Franco-Flemish composer Pierre de Manchicourt (c.1510-1564), a follower of Gombert and Créquillon, was one of the last polyphonists of his day before the new style developed by Lassus and the musicians of his generation came along. So it's a style of writing that some might call "old-fashioned": which, while not necessarily false, is hardly a fault! Note that Manchicourt was the Chapel-master to the King of Spain, Philip II of Spain, whose court was hardly the place for radical revolutions... This superb recording from the Huelgas Ensemble ably weaves together the Missa Veni Sancte Spiritus, still marked by a few late-medieval accents, with a few more daring religious motets and some secular songs of great beauty – profane, to be sure, but solidly polyphonic all the same: the new Italian influence seems to have passed Manchicourt by. All these masterpieces date from 1540 to 1560, at least in terms of their year of publication. © SM/Qobuz
