The Requiems by Ockeghem and La Rue This recording presents the two earliest surviving polyphonic Requiems, by Johannes (Jean de)
Ockeghem and Pierre de La Rue, both among the few major Netherlandish composers of the time not to have spent significant portions of their
careers in Italy. Little is known of the early career of La Rue (c. 1452-1518), but from 1492 he served successive rulers in the Habsburg-Burgundian
chapel alongside equally distinguished musicians, first under Maximilian, then Philip the Fair (with whom he travelled twice to Spain), and finally,
the cultivated and tragic figure of Marguerite of Austria, regent of the Netherlands, for whom many of his most beautiful sad songs were written
