About the album

Verrukkelijke polyfone zettingen van de beroemde Souterliedekens
Het Nederlandse woord ‘Souterliedekens’ is afgeleid van ‘psalterlied’. De Souterliedekens waren oorspronkelijk melodieën van populaire liefdes- en drinkliederen gezet op religieuze teksten, bedoeld om mensen te inspireren en motiveren om psalmen te zingen. De grote componist Clemens non Papa maakte driestemmige versies van deze liederen, die in 1556-1557 gepubliceerd werden door de beroemde Antwerpse drukker Tylman Susato. In 1561 publiceerde hij een tweede volume, met vierstemmige versies van de Souterliedekens gemaakt door een leerling van Clemens, Gherardus Mes. Over hem is niets anders bekend, niet eens zijn geboorte- of sterfjaar.

De Souterliedekens zijn niet alleen zeer beroemd en van groot historisch belang, maar ze bevatten ook de meest verrukkelijke muziek. Camerata Trajectina heeft ze over de hele wereld uitgevoerd met het hoogst mogelijke succes. Dit album bevat een selectie van de beste en meest betoverende polyfone zettingen, voorafgegaan door de originele liederen, zo dat het verschil tussen de wereldlijke liederen en de geestelijke polyfonie duidelijk gehoord kan worden.

Camerata Trajectina

It is impossible to imagine Dutch musical life without Camerata Trajectina. The early music ensemble has made a name for itself by pleading for Dutch music from the 16th en 17th century, in particular songs, and aims to bring this music back to life, in a playful and scientifically justified way. Camerata Trajectina comprises a nucleus of musicians, to which musicians and ensembles can be added. The group’s programmes deal chiefly with social events, such as exhibitions and commemorations of events and individuals from Dutch history. The group took part in almost all editions of the Utrecht Early Music Festival, gave hundreds of concerts in the Nederlands and Flanders and toured to amongst others the United States, Canada, Ghana and Indonesia.

Saskia Coolen (recorder)

In 2012, recorder player Saskia Coolen discovered by chance, in the Historical Museum in Den Briel, the head joint of an alto recorder, made by the instrument maker Engelbert Terton. She brought in the recorder builder and expert Jan Bouterse who thoroughly cleaned and restored the joint. He suggested that there might well be other playble recorders to be found in private collections. In the years since then, Saskia’s research has turned up six forgotten eighteenth-century recorders: five altos and a sopranino. On this album she plays these rediscovered recorders, together with gambist Rainer Zipperling and harpsichordist Patrick  Ayrton, in eighteenth-century music by De Fesch, Nozeman, Van Wassenaer and other contemporaries. In 2004 Saskia also played on historic recorders, from the  collection...

Jacobus Clemens non Papa

Jacobus Clemens non Papa was a Renaissance composer from the Franco-Flemish school. The story goes he gave the nickname 'non papa' to himself, so people could differentiate him from the Ypres poet Clemens Papa (Clément de Paepe). The pope, too, (which in Latin is called 'papa') was named Clemens at that time. However, considering that Pope Clement VII died in 1534, before any of Clemens's music was published, and that the confusion with the poet is unlikely in that the surnames were quite distinct, it is likely that the nickname was merely created in jest rather than for practical reasons. Nonetheless, the suffix has remained throughout the ages. Little is known of his life. He came from one of the seventeen...

Jacobus Clemens non Papa was a Renaissance composer from the Franco-Flemish school. The story goes he gave the nickname "non papa" to himself, so people could differentiate him from the Ypres poet Clemens Papa (Clément de Paepe). The pope, too, (which in Latin is called 'papa') was named Clemens at that time. However, considering that Pope Clement VII died in 1534, before any of Clemens's music was published, and that the confusion with the poet is unlikely in that the surnames were quite distinct, it is likely that the nickname was merely created in jest rather than for practical reasons. Nonetheless, the suffix has remained throughout the ages.
Little is known of his life. He came from one of the seventeen provinces of the current Belgium or the Netherlands (perhaps Zeeland). His first compositions was published in 1536. In 1544 he stayed in Brughes for a year, after which he started a business relationship with the publisher Tielman Susato from Antwerp, who woud publish most of his works until his death. Between 1545 and 1549 he probably was choirmaster to Philippe de Croy, Duke of Aerschot, one of Charles V's greatest generals, where he preceded Nicolas Gombert. According to Antonius Sanderus he was buried at Diksmuide near Ypres in present-day Belgium.
Unlike his contemporaries, Clemens never went to Italy. His style has remained "northern" without Italian influences. He composed a large number of works, among which 15 masses, more than 200 motets and 4 books with in total 159 psalms in Dutch (Souterliedekens). These were published by Tielman Susato in Antwerp.
