Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Ensemble Gombert
Celebrating its 31st year in 2021, Ensemble Gombert is Melbourne’s outstanding chamber choir, noted for its pure intonation and historical approach to choral sound and style.
Named after Nicolas Gombert, the Ensemble specialises in a cappella performance of Franco-Flemish music of the High Renaissance.
About this concert
Ensemble Gombert continues its celebration of Josquin des Prez, marking the 500th anniversary of his passing. This program consists of five works written in Josquin’s memory shortly after his death in 1521. All four motets mention Josquin by name, while Jachet’s Dum vastos Adriae also quotes words and music from each of the six Josquin motets heard in Ensemble Gombert’s first concert in this series. And although Richafort’s Requiem does not mention Josquin by name, it quotes extensively from his music. These great vocal works underscore Josquin des Prez’s immense, immortal and immovable legacy.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. As we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
