  • Nymphes des Bois (Josquin) – Flute Choir

    Nymphes des bois, also known as La Déploration de Johannes Ockeghem, is a lament by Josquin des Prez (ca. 1445 – 1521) on the death of his predecessor, Ockeghem. Josquin was one of the most influential Renaissance composers and was considered a great master of his time.

    The music is based on a poem (elegy) by Jean Molinet, a French poet and composer. The descending thirds in the chorus represent the names of the composers of that time: Josquin, Pierson, Brumel and Compére.

    The lyrics to the chorus are:

    Put on the clothes of mourning.
    Josquin, Pierson, Brumel, Compére.
    And weep great tears from your eyes,
    For you have lost your good father.
    May they rest in peace.

    Amen

  • Timeless – Flute Choir

    The past, present and future are combined in this flute choir, commissioned by Bruce Harrell to celebrate his love for his wife, Barbara. The past includes a madrigal by Giovanni Gabrieli and a brief excerpt from an Anton Bruckner motet. The present includes original music written to showcase the ensemble. The future, of course, remains unknown. Written for five C flutes, alto flute and bass flute, this will be a welcome addition to the flute choir repertoire.

    The excerpt recording was taken from the premiere performance, performed at the Harrell’s home in a surprise concert for Barbara.
