Josquin: Mille regretz

August 27, 2020

Today is the 499th anniversary of the death of Josquin Desprez. Let’s listen to one of his brief chansons, Mille Regretz, sung here, in casual habiliments, by Vox Luminis.

Next year on this day we must remember to express our demi-mille regretz.

    Thanks for this reminder. In response I’ve just ordered a CD I’ve had on my list for a while. It contains Josquin’s Missa De Beata Virgine and a selection of Mouton’s Motets (Theatre of Voices). Is it possible that I first heard about that disc here? I do remember hearing a Mouton motet somewhere and wanting more (I’ve been a Josquin fan for 20 years or more).

      I have that disc, and it’s a good one. Most of the Theatre of Voices records are! I can’t recall mentioning it here, but I suppose it is possible. In any case, I think you’ll like it.
