  • Savoy Project | The Binchois Consort
    periods Du Fay musical beacon of his age remained fascinated for more than two decades beginning in the 1430s by the artistic possiblities of his association with Savoy a duchy that stood in a relationship of friendly rivalry to its cousin state of Burgundy The programme pairs an epoch making mass setting of the 1450s the Missa Se la face ay pale long seen as a classic of its time with the elegant set of mass Propers unperformed since the fifteenth century for St Maurice St Maurice was a Savoyard saint of great renown and prestige he was the patron of Amadeus VIII s chivalric order founded at the Château de Ripaille on the southern shores of Lake Geneva and dedicatee both of the great abbey of St Maurice en Valais in the upper Rhône valley and of an important church in the ducal town of Pinerolo to the south west of Turin This brilliant tapestry of four part polyphony describing in a great arc the musical course of a princely Mass of the richest kind from the 1450s will be complemented by individual songs and motets closely connected to the Savoyard context Princes Popes Politics and the Power of Music This programme comprises a linked sequence of major works by Du Fay and others from the 1430s and 40s These were composed directly for some of the most emiinent men of the age both of the secular world and of the international church in an era when music religion and politics were still profoundly interconnected The programme sets great occasional pieces papal ceremonial music and contemplative devotional settings against one another in what we believe is a vivid and striking musical arrangement Rome Florence Savoy and the Council of Basel are all represented here as is Amadeus VIII in his later guise as Felix V the great peace loving antipope of Lausanne Major compositions by Du Fay are complemented by selections by Johannes Brassart and Nicolas Merques among others forming a musical counterpoint to such important cultural reference points as Conrad Witz s great altarpiece for St Peter s Geneva signed and dated 1444 and Aeneas Silvius Piccolomini s the future Pius II s Latin eulogy of Basel In Death A Living Monument the Brumel Requiem This programme showcases a sequence of commemorative pieces designed to evoke the death and commemoration of Duke Philibert II le Beau d 1504 The Eglise de Brou which still stands complete with the fabulous tomb of Philibert himself was built by his widow Marguerite of Austria as a grand funerary chapel for her husband and could well have been the setting for just such a Requiem as that by Brumel the centrepiece of this programme The Requiem is complemented by a new performing version of Brumel s five voice motet Languente miseris here reconstructed as a commemorative déploration which it may well have been and a short group of pieces on the Seven Joys of the Virgin Margaret s preferred theme for her
