Music in the Renaissance period began with Guillaume Duffy of the 16 century, and by the genealogy of musicians from North France called the Flanders Orchestra, the early Johannes Okegem and the Josquin de Produced a number of genius musicians such as pre and continued for 150 years. It is comparable to German music school which is the mainstream of modern classical music.


From the heyday of the Renaissance period to the weekend, many famous and famous musicians with individuality were active. Even if it is said that just mentioning a representative of a Romantic musician, it is the same as getting lost as to who to count.


Typical of contemporaries with Josquin des Prés (around 1450 - 1521), Antoine Brümel (1460-1513?), Heinrich Isaac (around 1450 - 1517), Jacob · Nicolas Gombert (1485 - 1558), Olecht (around 1450 - 1505), Pierre de la Rue (around 1460 - 1518 11} - 1556) and so on.


Among them, let's take Antoine Brümel this time.

He is rare in this era of Flemish music festival, not born in the Flemish province but is said to have been born near Paris.


In 1483 years, he became a singer of the Chartres Notre Dame Cathedral, then became a chaplain of St. Pierre Cathedral in Geneva. From 1498 to 3 years I am teaching the choir of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. From 1506 year he became a court chapel in the court of the Alfonso Alfonso 1 world, succeeding Jacob Oblecht.


The most famous of his works is the twelve-voice Mass "Behold, the earth is swaying a lot".

At that time, a form called a transit imitation style that followed melody in a polyphonic part like a canon was prosperous, but in Brümel, the thick harmony of the 12 voice part calls and complicates with a complex rhythm, while echoing It will expand and overwhelm those who listen. This is also a pioneer of the music of the Venetian concert at the later St. Mark's Basilica.


During the Renaissance period since Josquin Des Prés, Brümel is considered the greatest composer of the time, Petrucci of Venice published a collection of Mass. After that death, a number of composers composed compositions for memorial service.
