This program covers the patronage of the Dukes of Burgundy and the Kings of France, and the continued influence of the Church. It shows how music, like philosophy, moved away from the elaborate formality of the Gothic and, like architecture, sought new and purer forms. Music of Binchois, Ockeghem, Josquin des Pres, Palestrina, de Lassus, Tromboncino, and Gabrieli is performed by the Schutz Choir, Emma Kirkby and the New London Consort. Includes excerpts from: Dufay's Ce Moys de Mai; Binchois' Deuill Angoisseurs; Ockeghem's Requiem Mass; Josquin's Nymphe des Bois, Je Ne Me Puis, and Scaramella; Taverner's Oh Wilhelme, Pastor Bone; Andrea Gabrieli's Ricercare; Palestrina's Aeterna Christi Muneri and Sicut Cervus; Victoria's Domine Non Sum Dignus; two Milan pieces for vihuela; Tromboncino's Ite in Pace, Sospir Fieri; Claudin's Las, Je M'y Plains; Lassus' La Nuit froide et sombre; Giovanni Gabrieli's Omnes Gentes.
