Continuing with the theme of the 500th anniversary of the start of the Protestant Reformation, the Alternative History ensemble, headed by vocalist John Potter, will present a repertoire of music by Josquin Desprez, of whom Luther was a great admirer.
Under the name Secret History, the ensemble will present part of the album it recorded in 2017 for the ECM label, where it investigates the relationships the music of Josquin Desprez and Tomás Luis de Victoria have established through different generations of musicians. For their concert in the Lights of Early Music Festival, Alternative History will perform pieces exclusively by Desprez, a key figure in Renaissance music. Desprez’s work includes all the major genres of the period, and it had a decisive influence that extended across the whole of Europe during the 15th and 16th centuries. The repertoire that makes up Secret History centres on sacred pieces for different voices, accompanied by vihuelas. The version by Alternative History will take us into a reflective and intense universe of music that will appeal to our deepest emotions.
