Renaissance Art and Music

: the space between

Video Pairing: Agnus Dei – van Eyck and Josquin

This is the pairing example we used as an introductory excersize at our first training session. Just thought I’d post it for those who couldn’t make it. It was interesting to see how art historians approached the painting, the music, and the painting and music together… and how it was similar and different to the things the musicologists observed. We will certainly have more music people at our next event, 15 April: Event Schedule
