Giaches De Wert (1535-1596) and his time

Migration of musicians to and from the low countries (c. 1400-1600)
E. Schreurs & B. Bouckaert (Editors)
In connection with the 400th anniversary of the death of Giaches de Wert, the Alamire Foundation held a colloquium in August 1996 (Antwerp). The main topic was Giaches de Wert and His Time. The papers published here discuss new information from the institutions with which de Wert was connected and place his madrigals in a broad stylistic and aesthetic context. The second topic is the migration of musicians and the consequences for their music. The discription of the funding of collegiate churches also gives a picture of the financial context in which this music was created.
