  • Description

    Tore Tom Denys, the artistic leader of the Dionysos Now!, has undertaken a scholarly exploration of the compositions that pay tribute to Adriaen Willaert to create this collection of musical pieces. Tom's notes in the booklet shed light on the historical context and significance of each piece.

    "It has long been my desire to compile a single album of all the many elegies and songs of praise in which Maestro Adriaen Willaert is musically immortalized. In recent years, various musicological articles have been published that shed light on the music that pays tribute to Adriaen Willaert, composed in the period following his death on December 7, 1562. However, recordings and especially performances of most of these works have been lacking until now. All the more reason to fill this 'vacuum'--which, for some works, spans over 400 years--with Dionysos Now!" - Tore Tom Denys

    Dionysos Now! contributes to the preservation of cultural heritage by presenting musical works that have not been widely heard or performed for centuries. It plays a vital role in safeguarding the artistic legacy of Adriaen Willaert and the cultural context in which these compositions emerged.
