Giddy with excitement

thinking about tomorrow’s Franco-Flemish Special.

Those of you who’ve been coming to PDtP for a while will know that I’m a big Josquin fan, and tomorrow we get three(-ish) works by the great man to perform, including this one:

(though sadly not the version with obbligato accordion.)

Josquinophiles may also be pleased to see that Gombert‘s remix of the master’s Mille regretz is also on the set-list:

It wouldn’t be a celebration of all things Netherlandish without an appearance by Lassus:

And at the lesser-known end of the F-F spectrum is Manchicourt, though with a chanson like this we should be singing his stuff all the time:


All these and many, many more besides! There’re still a couple of spaces left for sopranos, tenors and basses so with the tube strike called off, why not come along?

I am a classical music enthusiast and a lover of choral music in particular. I run the Polyphony Down the Pub social/singing night, probably the most thrilling singing-Renaissance-motets-in-the-backroom-of-a-pub experience you could ever hope to have.
