Ep. 43 - Northern Renaissance and Renaissance Pt. 2

"Et tu, Northern Renaissance?"

"I mean, you all came up with the designation. Not me..."

Sorry, Shakespeare, but you have so many good lines!


After last week’s Appalachian interlude, we are rebirthing our Renaissance saga with a look at some Renaissance composers from across Europe and a dive into the Northern Renaissance of art! The Northern Renaissance stands as its own monolith of an artistic movement distinct from the Italian Renaissance; but how does it do so, and who were some important artists? KC's got you covered! Amidst her discussion, Izaac will interject a few works by notable Renaissance composers who contributed to the changing musical landscape in unique ways.



Robert Campin (active 1406-1444): Annunciation Triptych or Merode Altarpiece


Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528): The Four Horsemen from the Apocalypse  (1497-1498) 


Unknown: Unicorn is Found at the Fountain (1495-1505) 




Johannes Ockeghem (c.1420-1497): Missa Prolationum (late 15th centry) 

Thomas Tallis (c.1505-85): Verily, Verily I Say unto You 

Maddalena Casulana (c.1545-c.1590): "Morir non può il mio cuore" from Madrigals, Book 2 (1568)
