Rediscovering Compère

The name Loyset Compère is not as familiar as Dufay or Josquin, but many—the Orlando Consort among them—believe that this Franco-Flemish composer deserves a place amongst the masters of the 15th century. His early Renaissance compositions combine a sophisticated technical mind with an ear for sheer beauty. This program makes the case for Compère with a wide variety of works: his stately “Magnificat,” moving motets, and a range of secular songs, from laugh-out-loud bawdy to exquisitely romantic.
