About this album

The vihuelist Ariel Abramovich teams up with the legendary soprano María Cristina Kiehr and the rising star, tenor Jonatan Alvarado, in producing a very special view on Josquin Desprez, with transcriptions of some of the composer’s most significant works. Their procedure follows the tradition of the 16th-century authors that built up the vihuela repertoire (Fuenllana, Narváez, Pisador, etc.), often based on adaptations of the great polyphonic works of their time, in a unique approach that puts Josquin in an Iberian light.

Finely recorded in Spain’s Tui Cathedral and containing a new essay by scholar John Griffiths, this production adds an exquisite jewel to the already rich treasure trove of Desprez recordings produced in 2021, the 5th centenary of his death, by various great labels – not the least Glossa’s two other contributions, by the ensembles Graindelavoix and Cantica Symphonia
