Music from the time of Emperor Maximilian I *POSTPONED*

Benslow Music, Benslow Lane, Hitchin

At eighteen, Maximilian I (1459–1519) married Mary of Burgundy (‘Mary the Rich’), and at her court developed the profound love and knowledge of music and musicians which he later put to good use in the foundation of his own court. He inherited musicians from his father, father-in-law and cousin, and gathered about him an unparalleled musical establishment. This week will focus on music from Maximilian’s time, and particularly from his circle: court composers Heinrich Isaac and Ludwig Senfl and celebrated organist-composer Paul Hofhaimer will be central figures. ​
