Os compositores conhecidos coletivamente como os Fiamminghi deixaram a sua marca na Europa em geral e na Itália e na França em particular durante o século XV. O seu talento e habilidade conquistaram as posições mais importantes nos grandes estabelecimentos musicais da época. Esta coleção é dedicada aos principais compositores do século XV, desde os da primeira geração (Guillaume Dufay, Gilles Binchois, Arnold de Lantins e Johannes Brassart) até Johannes Ockeghem, Josquin Desprez e Pierre de La Rue, que lançaram as fundações do Ars Perfecta durante o Renascimento. Também se inclui aqui Jacob Obrecht, o único compositor desta escola cuja carreira foi baseada essencialmente na sua Flandres nativa.

The composers known collectively as the Fiamminghi made their mark in Europe in general and in Italy and in France in particular during the 15th century. Their talent and skill gained them the most important positions in the great musical establishments of the time. This collection is devoted to the leading composers of the 15th century, from those of the first generation (Guillaume Dufay, Gilles Binchois, Arnold de Lantins and Johannes Brassart) through Johannes Ockeghem, Josquin Desprez and Pierre de La Rue, who laid the foundations of the Ars Perfecta during the Renaissance. Also included is Jacob Obrecht, the only composer of this school whose career was based essentially in his native Flanders.

"If you don’t know this type of polyphonic vocal music, this sumptuous volume is an excellent introduction to the style, focusing, as it does, on the area in Europe where the most important composers of the time developed their work." (Kirk McElhearn in Music Web International).

"Whether or not you are familiar with the music from this period, whether or not you have representative collections from its composers, The Flemish Polyphony is definitely recommended" (Mark Sealey in Classical Net Review).
