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.‎

Program

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.‎
