Harmonia
with Angela Mariani
Mille Regretz - Regret is a powerful emotion, just as it was in 1400s when the Franco-Flemish composer Josquin des Prez set a text about a thousand regrets to music. Josquins anguished tune Mille Regretz swept through Europe like a fever, and well hear a multitude of settings, from plain to wild. Plus, well hear music from a featured release by lutenist Hopkinson Smith.
