LINAROL CONSORT OF VIOLS
WITH HÉLOÏSE BERNARD
Epitaph for a Green Lover
The Linarol Consort with Héloïse Bernard are delighted to be recording a programme telling the remarkable story of Margaret of Austria, one of the 16th century’s greatest patrons of the arts, though music from her own manuscripts.
The title comes from the sublime chanson 'Soubz ce tumbel', with its tragic text by Margaret’s court poet, Jean Lemaire, taken from his 'Epitaphe de l’Amant Vert', in which the Green Lover refers to Margaret's beloved green parrot.
The recording will comprise of songs and instrumental music by the great composers of the period including Brumel, Ockeghem, Josquin, de Orto & Pierre de la Rue.
