Notes and Editorial Reviews

Thomas Crecquillon is not today one of the better-known Renaissance composers, since only in recent years has much of his music been available to modern performers; but in his own day, he was a very famous composer. During that part of his life of which we have some knowledge he held the position of maitre de la chappelle, singer, chaplain, and, unofficially, court composer at the court of Charles V, one of the premier music positions in Europe during the period. Charles's empire was enormous, extending from Bohemia to the Americas, and Crecquillon's music was circulated widely throughout that region. It survives in most of the musical sources of that period; obviously it was widely performed. Writers on music in his own time and even into Read more the late 17th century reckoned him among the pre-eminent composers. He was also a very prolific one, best known for his sacred music. Oddly enough, given his prominence, we know little else of his life. He retired by 1555 and disappeared from the records after 1557. Most likely he died in the plague that ravaged Europe that year.
