(NL) Call for Papers: "Music and Patronage in the Low Countries" -- KVNM Autumn Meeting (Nov. 12-13, 2010)

In many languages the term “maecenas”, derived from Gaius Cilnius Maecenas (70 BC - 8 BC), councilor of emperor Augustus, has become synonymous with lavish and enlightened patronage of the arts. Being in service as a musician or a composer, however, did not necessarily imply that the artist had found himself a maecenas. In 1556, for instance, Orlandus Lassus dedicated his first book of motets to Antoine Perrenot de Granvelle, most likely because Lassus hoped that this influential statesman might help provide him with a position in the internationally renowned capilla flamenca of Philips II. Unfortunately for Lassus, his colleague Pierre de Manchicourt, who preceded Lassus in dedicating a music publication to Granvelle, was appointed instead.
