Once again, the Alamire foundation weighs in with a superb recording (and story book!) of the works of an imaginary Flemish composer as he journeyed to Italy from Bruges, bringing the Northern style as he went.

A requiem for a friend; a funeral mass without a corpse, a

catafalque with an empty coffin. The gravediggers need not

dig deep. They have only to remove a few paving stones...

it is now more than a week since we heard the sad news of

Magister Andreas Ornitoparchus, alias Andries Vogelaers,

off the coast of Africa....

 

These words are the opening of the book Magister X:

The Imaginary Journal of a Flemish Polyphonist.

This project is the creation of Johan Van Cauwenberge,

longtime early music radio producer and presenter on

Belgian Radio 3. It was supported by the Alamire Foundation

and the Government of Flanders. All performances are by

the Capilla Flamenca. The companion CD takes pieces by

various Lowlands composers to illustrate the journey from

the north to the south and back.
