Description: EARLY MUSIC NEW YORK’S chapel concerts within NYC’s great gothic Cathedral, are the ideal setting for masterful motets and saucy chansons by Josquin Desprez and his late 15th-century contemporaries. The epitome of Renaissance polyphony, interwoven chant and secular melodies are spun into rich tapestries of unsurpassed aural beauty. EM/NY’s chamber singers are joined by dueling lute virtuosi.
