Program: #03-16, Air Date: 04/21/03For the holy season of Eastertide, we turn to this premier recording of one of the masses of the great Flemish master Pierre de la Rue, with the Clerks' Group and Edward Wickham.
NOTE: All of the music on this recording is performed by
The Clerks' Group directed by Edward Wickham. The recording
is dedicated to Pierre de la Rue, born in Tournai c. 1453 (because
of recent discoveries about Pierre becoming a singer in Brussels in 1470,
his birthdate has been moved back). While also working in Ghent and
S'Hertogenbosch, his real place came in the Burgundian court of
Marguerite of Austria.
This recording is on the ASV early music imprint Gaudeamus, and
is CD GAU 307. The U.S. distributor is Koch Entertainment:
The program is sponsored in part by the Belgian Tourist Office
