'father of joy' - Gilles Binchois - as their next challenge. Yet what Björn Schmelzer has assembled for this new recording, entitled Joye, contains, in fact, a number of plaintes or laments by Binchois. How so?
"For me," Schmelzer says, "Binchois is one of the greatest songwriters of all times. He (and Ockeghem) lived and loved to live in a world of paradoxes which he integrated into his work.The happiness and joy that such composers talked about are not common feelings, but something deeper, a sublime joye - one you can only express in sadness, despair, solitude, distance and absence of love.We searched also for a new sound and a new way of dealing with instrumental involvement and ornamentation, but one that involved finding a true (and therefore 'authentic') sound in which words, ornaments, phrasing and lines speak again and allow one to feel this 'douloureuse joye'."
