Info for Secret Consolations

If Johannes Tinctoris (1435-1511) is today widely recognised as one of the most renowned music theorists of his time, he was also a perceptive observer of the musical practices of the Renaissance. After studying in Orléans, he held several positions in Cambrai, Liège and finally Naples. Here his gifts as a composer could flourish at the court of King Ferrante of Aragon as a chaplain, legal advisor and music tutor of Ferrante’s daughter Beatrice.

This programme retraces his career through his extremely varied output: French and Italian songs, Mass movements, and instrumental pieces.

Baptiste Romain, violin, direction

Le Miroir de Musique
is an ensemble specialised in the music of the late middle ages and Renaissance, from the golden age of the troubadours to the humanist movements of the 16th century. Directed by Baptiste Romain, the ensemble is based in Basel (CH) and brings together the most prolific of the new generation of early music performers, many of whom are graduates of the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. Le Miroir de Musique combines historically informed performance with rich sonorities and virtuosic instrumental practice.

The image of a "Mirror of Music" is borrowed from Jacques de Liège's treatise (Speculum Musicae), and reflects our goal of painting a vivid picture of medieval and Renaissance music, in a spirit of fidelity to the original sources.
