'People come and go, and the earth keeps on spinning... This is the theme of Again and again, in which the old master Josquin des Prez (ca. 1450/55-1521) and contemporary American composer David Lang (et al.) celebrate the cycle of life then and now: from beginning to end, from sorrow and punishment to love, reconciliation and resignation.An a capella programme full of reflection.

Obviously, there are huge differences between the music by Josquin des Prez and David Lang, but there is also a significant similarity that effortlessly bridges the gap of five centuries of history. In the works of either composer time, or rather the abolishment of time, is crucial. The awareness of being a whirling leaf in eternity blows throughout the works of either composer.
