Josquin--whose ravishingly expressive works were universally admired for their sublime beauty--was unquestionably the greatest composer of his age. Yet, Isaac--who astonishing versatility produced songs in every language, lively instrumental pieces, and masterpieces of Flemish contrapuntal art--was not far behind. In the season's opening concert, Josquin & Isaac: Master of the Notes, the Folger Consort performed motets, songs, and carmina by both Renaissance masters. Performances were held from October 7 to October 9, 2005.
