New Year at the Court of Rudolf II.
AMUZ, Kammerstraat 81, Antverpy (BE)
Carolus Luython (1557-1620), born in Antwerp, worked as a court composer for Emperor Rudolf II. His Popularis anni iubilus is a collection of motets dedicated to the episcopal ordination of Rudolf II’s brother, Archduke Ernest. The work was actually intended for a new year’s celebration, with themes such as the many virtues of the emperor and the beginning of the new earthly and celestial year.
