@Missam - Jean Richafort

Sunday January 26 at 10 a.m.
in the Sint-Pieterskerk in Leuven

Jean Richafort, Missa Veni Sponsa Christi

Jean Richafort was probably born in Hainaut and studied with Josquin des Prez. Between 1507 and 1509 he worked as a choirmaster at the Sint-Rombouts cathedral in Mechelen and between 1542 and 1547 at the Sint-Gilliskerk in Bruges. At a certain moment he seems to have been affiliated with the French royal chapel and there is some evidence that he was employed in 1531 in Brussels by governor Mary of Hungary. He wrote masses, motets and chansons, and a requiem mass in honor of Josquin des Prez.

Additionally: Jean Richafort, Veni Sponsa Christi / Josquin des Prez, Qui velatus facie fuisti

Cipriano de Rore: Le Vergine

The poetry of Francesco Petrarca has inspired many artists through the ages. His sonets and stanzes are so musical and speak very intensely to the imagination. His muse Laura, who in a certain sense has always remained an unattainable love and for which he spent almost all his life in literary ecstasy, has been a constant inspiration to him.

Malfliet Arnout 05Aug2015"Polyphony or baroque, it's always a party at Eriks, I know nobody else who can translate things technically in such a way and then make music out of it again."
