Cipriano de Rore Parody Mass

Duration:
58 minutes
First broadcast:
Saturday 10 August 2013

Josquin's motet - Praeter rerum seriem - proved to be very popular with younger composers of 16th century and in this programme Lucie Skeaping takes a look at how two of them - Cipriano de Rore and Roland de Lassus - paid a compliment to Josquin by using material from the motet in their own music. Nowadays song writers and composers "sample" music from elsewhere all the time but the idea is not a new one. "Parody" masses were very popular in the 16th century, sometimes being controversial in the choice of material if it was not sacred. De Rore's mass and a Magnificat by Lassus, along with the original Josquin motet, have been specially recorded for the Early Music Show by the BBC Singers conducted by Peter Phillips, who talks to Lucie Skeaping about why this music fascinates him.
