Ο απαράμιλλος δάσκαλος της αναγεννησιακής πολυφωνίας Josquin Des Prez, κεντρική φιγούρα της γαλλο-φλαμανδικής σχολής είχε στην εποχή του το προσωνύμιο “Πρίγκηπας Της Μουσικής”. Παίρνουμε μια ιδέα του γιατί, με τη βοήθεια των Stile Antico, που τους ακούμε στο Ave Maria, Virgo Serena.

The unparalleled master of Renaissance polyphony Josquin Des Prez, a central figure of the Franco-Flemish school, had in his time the nickname “Prince of Music”. We get an idea of why, with the help of Stile Antico, which we hear performing Ave Maria, Virgo Serena.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
