Although I have quite a few Josquin CDs, this one is rather unusual among them: where most look 'back' and see Josquin in the context of his medieval predecessors, this CD looks 'forward' and sees Josquin as predecessor of the madrigalists. Songs are accompanied by a consort of viols or a lute (or both), creating a sound-world that matches the Italian madrigals of a generation (or two) later, or that of Dowland and the English lute/consort songs. And it is quite an eye-opener, because it really works, and thus reminds us that Josquin was in some respects transitional, too.

I would, though, recommend the Hilliards' disc of songs and religious pieces as a still better introduction to Josquin, and for their livelier performances of several of the chansons too. (And, as a minor complaint, I personally would have preferred vocal versions of some of Josquin's best songs which are only offered in lute/viol transcriptions here - Fortuna desperata, Fors seulement for instance.) ---D.
