Born in poverty in Antwerp, few of the Flemish composers who made such a mark on European music had an impact as great as Cipriano--at the end of his life he went between Brussels and Parma, where he is interred beside the great artist Agostino Caracci.

 

NOTE: All of the music on this program is from
the recording Cipriano de Rore: Sacred & Secular Motets

by Manfred Cordes.
