Notes and Editorial Reviews

approached with veneration and, already in the early 16th century, regarded as examples of good and demanding counterpoint. As a member of the first generation of genuinely instrumental composers, he wrote not only the masses, motets and chansons that were customary during this period, but also a large number of works without text that were obviously created for instruments by virtue of their construction. As a result, his musical rhetoric went considerably farther than his otherwise congenial colleagues Josquin Desprez and Heinrich Isaak, and he composed instrumental works that were far ahead of his time. Agricola's style was not only distinguished by refined writing, however; his contemporaries also regarded him as "unusual, peculiar Read more and mad": he cultivated a "dark style" to which one only has access through "experiencing" his music - to some extent by "living through" the works.
