Decca Classics presents the release of the first in a trilogy of recordings from the internationally acclaimed vocal ensemble Stile Antico to celebrate major anniversaries of three Renaissance masters. The first in the series, The Golden Renaissance: Josquin des Prez, is dedicated to the Franco-Flemish composer to mark the 500th anniversary of his death. One of the most important composers of the Renaissance, Josquin’s remarkable developments in polyphonic vocal music defined the genre for all those who followed him. Stile Antico’s new album is structured around one of the composer’s most famous mass settings, Missa Pange lingua.
