The Early Garden

sun 25 jun 2017 16:00 

One hour of browsing through early music, with an accent on Masses. Music by Heinrich Isaac, who passed away 500 years ago.

On Sunday 26 March 2017 was the five hundreth anniversary of the death of Flemish composer Heinrich Isaac.

In his lifetime, Heinrich Isaac was maybe just as famous as Josquin des Prez. He worked for the most powerful kings of his day and was one of the most productieve composers of the renaissance.
