The centerpiece of this week's show is a 2019 release from Per-Sonat and Sabine Lutzenberger celebrating the superb music at the court of Emperor Maximilian I. We'll hear songs by Ludwig Senfl and Heinrich Isaac, and dances collected by the emperor's daughter, Duchess Margaret of Austria. We'll also hear the Tallis Scholars perform Optime Pastor, a motet composed for a meeting between Pope Leo X and Maximilian's chancellor.
