The ensemble Thélème shows us surprising parallels between two composers of quite different provenance: the Viennese early-romantic Franz Schubert and the French Renaissance master Clément Janequin. Both composers are known for their songs and chansons. There are also similarities between the careful treatment of the text, the well-thought-out selection of the authors and the refined setting of the texts with detailed accompaniment. Love and contemplatism were often used as topics. Also, both masters seemed to have a chronic shortage of money.
