Orlandus Lassus (1532-1594)

 

Orlandus Lassus was one of the most prolific composers of the Renaissance period and his music was disseminated widely in both manuscript and print. He travelled extensively and after having held various positions in Italy he joined the court of Albrecht V of Bavaria, becoming maestro di cappella in 1563. His musical style is wide ranging, often fusing the mature polyphonic style of the Netherlands school with modern influences such as the “Venetian” style. His final work is the penitential cycle of spiritual madrigals Lagrime di San Pietro (1594), similar in style to Monteverdi and Gesualdo.
