NOTE: All of the music on this program is from a recording made of the concert by the Egidius Kwartet from the 2003 Holland Festival of Early Music at Utrecht.

Hieronymous Lauweryn was Minsiter of Finance for three Burgundian monarchs (Emperor Maximilian I, Philippe le Bon, and Margaretha of Austria). This is the first primarily secular songbook collected in the Lowlands. The program is supported in part by Radio Nederland and the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Washington, D.C.
