The daily life of Duchess Margaret of Austria (1480-1530) was steeped in art and music. She owned an impressive art collection, including The Arnolfini Wedding by Jan van Eyck, and left behind two gorgeously illuminated songbooks containing music by the most celebrated composers of her time. We'll hear selections from these songbooks, by composers like Brumel, de la Rue, and Ockeghem, with performances by the Clerks' Group, Capilla Flamenca, and Encantar.
