EARLY MUSIC NEW YORK'S chapel concerts within NYC's great gothic Cathedral, are the ideal setting for the masterful motets and saucy chansons by Josquin Desprez and his 15th-century Lowlands contemporaries. The epitome of Renaissance polyphony, intricate interwoven chant and secular melodies are spun into rich tapestries of unsurpassed beauty. EM/NY's singers are joined by dueling lute virtuosi.
