Cappella Pratensis’ Hieronymus-Bosch-Hommage on Challenge Classics

CC72710_coverFor their new recording on Challenge Classics Cappella Pratensis have chosen the Missa Cum jocunditate by Pierre de la Rue (c.1452-1518), who was not only the most renowned composer of the Habsburg-Burgundian court but also an external member of the brotherhood from the early 1490s until his death in 1518. Indeed, La Rue may well have had occasion to meet Bosch during these years. Music clearly fascinated the great Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch(c.1450-1516); his sketches and paintings are peppered with closely observed depictions of music-making and musical instruments.
