Notes and Editorial Reviews

A cheerful nature is ascribed to Heinrich in a letter, in which the replacement of the court Kapellmeister's post in Ferrara is dealt with, and Isaac is compared with his rival Josquin. A cheerful nature, however, is at the same time the musical pattern for several settings by Isaac, and therefore became the title of this CD. As was usual in his time, Heinrich Isaac, in many of his works, used settings of other masters as models and reworked them as new works of art. So Michael Form and his ensemble Les Flamboyants, in this CD of Isaac's textless music – that is to say instrumental music have documented the first blooms of instrumental music, which was slowly evolving at the time. It is helpful for this recording that the wellknown hits of Read more his day, which Isaac skilfully incorporates into his works, are performed vocally – thus they are between the elaborately ornamented and at times virtuosic instrumental parts and easy for today's listeners to follow.
