A composer admired by his contemporaries, Josquin Desprez (ca 1450-1521) was a solitary artist who sublimated in his chansons the melancholy character and the elegance emblematic of the Renaissance. For their first recording, Dulces Exuviae explore the intimacy of these chansons in a fresh light: the sweet melodies are embellished by ornaments and accompanied on the lute, leaving ample room for improvisation, and thus allowing music to come out all the more alive, delicate and filled with emotion

"This CD devoted entirely to his music is more than to be welcomed: it is a major breakthrough in the availability of early 15th-century music in the catalogue. [...] As I said, we should be massively grateful that this CD exists at all."" ""
