Innsbruck, ich muß dich lassen

https://www.discogs.com/release/5032629-Nikolaus-Harnoncourt-Innsbruck-Ich-Muß-Dich-Lassen-Musik-Der-Hofkapelle-Kaiser-Maximilians-I

Music for emperor Maximilian I. In the last quarter of the fifteenth century, Emp Max started to collect all the musicians in his large empire. He got them together at his court, and in doing so created an enormous impetus for the new music from Northern Europe. On this record some of these composers can be heard in reconstructed form.

Not much is known about the way it was played, so most of this is indeed that: a reconstruction. It tells a lot about the fifteenth century, but more about the sixties when this was recorded. One can make a study of these performances to see the way it changed with time.

Yes, it is funny that this has the same title as the previous record.
