Distant Mirror: Sept. 22 - "Mishmash" Mass

Sep 22, 2017

It's the music of 15th century Flemish composer Alexander Agricola on this week's Distant Mirror.  Agricola's music is rarely performed today because of its difficulty and eccentricity, but Paul van Nevel has long been a champion of  lost causes and has arranged mass movements of Agricola's into a musical quilt which he calls the Missa Guzzzabuglio (which translates as "mishmash" mass).  Van Nevel directs the Huelgas Ensemble.
