Roland De Lassus: Biographie Musicale, Vol. 3
Of a decade of Lassus' activity at the court of Bavaria (1569-1579) marked by a deterioration of relations with his patron Prince Albert V, this recording captures the variety of genres covered by the composer, from the liturgical area (mass, Magnificat) to the free inspiration of the composer: religious and secular motets, Latin and French songs, madrigals, secular and spiritual Lieder, not to mention his only contribution to the purely instrumental field with two-part works that make the link between the different parts.
