The Early Garden

One hour of browsing through early music, with an accent on Masses. Today’s episode is dedicated to Margaret of Austria. She was regent of the Habsburg Netherlands from 1507 until her death, and Pierre de La Rue was her favourite composer.

Margaret of Austria (1480-1530) was intellectually and artistically gifted and brought many painters and musicians to her court in Mechelen. Her favourite composer Pierre de La Rue wrote many chansons for her, which have been preserved in various collections, which also include other prominent composers of the time.
A number of those chansons can be heard on this broadcast.
