The Song Company
For Emperor and Pope: Music for a Renaissance Court

In their latest release for ABC Classics, The Song Company showcases a range of extraordinary vocal music from the northern European Renaissance.
During the 1500s, there was an unprecedented musical flourishing within the German Empire. This album presents the vocal works which were the jewel in this cultural crown: soaring polyphony composed for the most important chapels and courts of the day, alongside bawdy ballads to entertain in banquet halls and private chambers. Attracted by the wealth and splendour of the imperial courts, skilled composers responded with music of extraordinary richness, blending the high art of the Flemish school with the sensuous freedom of the Italian style.
Surveying the work of five composers, this album celebrates the sacred and secular songs of the masterful Orlande de Lassus alongside musical gems by his neglected contemporaries, presented here in all the glory of their Renaissance origins.Includes works by

HEINRICH ISAAC c.1450–1517 ,
ARNOLD VON BRUCK c.1500–1554
JACOBUS VAET c.1529–1567
JACOB REGNART c.1540–1599
ORLANDE DE LASSUS 1532–1594
