Notes and Editorial Reviews

More than 400 years ago, the musician and composer Martin Peudargent (ca. 1510 - before 1594) was employed at the ducal court of Jülich-Kleve. He left an extensive oeuvre, which has only recently become widely accessible. His first collection of motets, the »Liber Primus sacrarum cantionum quinque vocum, quae vulgo Moteta vocantur«, was printed in Düsseldorf in 1555. On the title page, Peudargent is described as »Illustrißimi Ducis Iuliae, Cliviae, Bergiae etc. Musicus«. From a later source it appears that he originated from Huy in the Netherlands, in the prince-bishopric of Liège. He may therefore have been educated in the city of Liège. In later years he maintained close relations with Read more Liège musicians such as Adamus de Ponta. The motet collection is the earliest proof of Peudargent’s employment at the court of Jülich-Kleve. In an earlier record, dating from 1532, he is described as »magister Martin Peudargent« and owner of a house in the ducal seat of Kleve. Peudargent was probably employed at the local convent school, whose choir sung frequently at court.

The present recording focuses on the »State or Homage motets« from Peudargent’s second collection (1555), in which reference is made to the ducal house. The recording also includes works from the first and second motet books, as they would have been performed in the day-to-day routine of a court »Kapelle«: settings of biblical texts, especially psalms, and free texts according to the church year.
