The firm published some of the earliest modern editions of Renaissance vocal music by Antoine Brumel, Goudimel,
, Mouton, and Lassus. This was made possible though the patronage of an Alexandrian industrialist, Négib Sursock in 1924.
François Rabelais immortalized Arcadelt in the introduction to Book IV of "Gargantua and Pantagruel", where he includes the musician between Clément
and Claudin de Sermisy as part of a choir singing a ribald song, in which Priapus boasts to the gods on Mount Olympus of his method of using a mallet to deflower a new bride.
wrote very little liturgical music: only two masses and a single motet are attributed to him, though more may have been lost. His 250 secular chansons and his (over 80) psalm settings and "chansons spirituelles" — the French equivalent of the Italian "madrigale spirituale" — were his primary legacy.
Some of Canis's chansons use a cantus-firmus technique, in which Canis takes a line or two of music from a pre-existing chanson, including examples by
, Claudin de Sermisy, and Gombert, and reworks it in a contrapuntal texture much different from the original, but using the same words.
Claudin de Sermisy (c. 1490 – 13 October 1562) was a French composer of the Renaissance. Along with Clément
he was one of the most renowned composers of French chansons in the early 16th century; in addition he was a significant composer of sacred music. His music was both influential on, and influenced by, contemporary Italian styles.
(c. 1485 – 1558) was a French composer of the Renaissance. He was one of the most famous composers of popular chansons of the entire Renaissance, and along with Claudin de Sermisy, was hugely influential in the development of the Parisian chanson, especially the programmatic type. The wide spread of his fame was made possible by the concurrent development of music printing.
Few composers of the Renaissance were more popular in their lifetimes than
. His chansons were well-loved and widely sung. The Paris printer Pierre Attaingnant printed five volumes with his chansons. "La bataille", which vividly depicts the sounds and activity of a battle, is a perennial favorite of "a cappella" singing groups even in the present day.
French musical domination of Europe ended during the Renaissance, and Flemish and Italian musicians became more important. Later French composers of the Renaissance include Nicolas Gombert, Pierre de La Rue, Pierre de Manchicourt, Claude Goudimel, Pierre Certon, Jean Mouton, Claudin de Sermisy, and Clément
. The French chanson became popular during this time, and was exported to Italy as the canzona.
His second label, Valois, recorded Sándor Végh and his Végh Quartet, and discs of Clément
and Amours de Ronsard with the Ensemble Polyphonique de Paris of the composer Charles Ravier. Ravier returned to Bernstein in the 1970s to make two recordings of the "Meslanges" of Lassus, the second of them deeply problematic.
Passereau's chansons are mostly light-hearted affairs, similar in content to the Italian "frottola," although no direct influence from the earlier popular Italian form has been reliably demonstrated. He liked to use nonsense syllables, often in imitation of animals, as in "Il est bel et bon", his most popular piece, which imitates the clucking of chickens. This composition was sung as far away as Venice. While Passereau may have gotten the idea from
, who was writing onomatopoeic chansons as early as 1515 ("Il est bel et bon" was published in 1534), its popularity rivaled that of the music of
, and printer Pierre Attaingnant devoted a book entirely to the music of the two composers (in 1536). It is possible that Francis I, who knew Passereau from his service at the French court, recommended the composer to the printer.
The programmatic chansons for which
is famous were long, sectional pieces, and usually cleverly imitated natural or man-made sounds. "Le chant des oiseaux" imitates bird-calls; "La chasse" the sounds of a hunt; and "La bataille" ("Escoutez tous gentilz"), probably the most famous, and almost certainly written to celebrate the French victory over the Swiss Confederates at the Battle of Marignano in 1515, imitates battle noises, including trumpet calls, cannon fire and the cries of the wounded Onomatopoeic effects such as these became a commonplace in later 16th century music, and carried over into the Baroque era; indeed "battle music" was to become a cliché, but it first came into prominence with
Commemorating the event are a bas-relief of the Battle of Marignano by Pierre Bontemps, which decorates Francis I's tomb at Saint-Denis; a painting by Antoine Caron for Fontainebleau (now at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa); and the most famous musical composition of Clément
, the chanson "La guerre". The Swiss hero Hans Bär appears in a fresco on the tower of the Basel City Hall.
