Professor Jesse Rodin talks about Renaissance composer Josquin Desprez in The New Yorker

Jun 14 2021

Jesse RodinAssociate Professor (Musicology) at Stanford University's Department of Music, is featured in Alex Ross's recent article in The New Yorker, entitled "Opus One". In this profile of the Renaissance composer Josquin Desprez, Ross calls on Josquin-devotees such as Prof. Rodin and Joshua Rifkin to give their personal impressions on why Josquin remains such a key figure in the sacred music of the Renaissance — indeed, his name can be seen carved on a wall of the Sistine Chapel. Prof. Rodin's considerable interest in Josquin's works led to his creation of the Josquin Research Project, an online resource that was launched in 2010 with technological support from Craig Sapp at Stanford's Computer-assisted Research in the Humanities (CCARH) center. | See the full article here.
