Janequin – Petite Nymphe folastre

Забележителният блог, посветен на поезията на Ронсар, която тук търпеливо и прецизно е превеждана на английски, започва да въвежда и музикалния контекст на ронсаровото творчество. Ето какво казва този страстен ронсаровед за себе си: Who am I?

Also a much plainer setting; following the style of older polyphony (Josquin, Gombert and others) Janequin develops the setting around short motifs which are then imitated and developed across the voices…
