For twenty-four or more years composer Pierre de la Rue (d. 1518) provided music for one of the leading musical institutions of his day, the grande chapelle of the Habsburg-Burgundian court. Serving successive rulers Maximilian I, Philip the Fair, Juana of Castile, Marguerite of Austria, and the future Charles V, La Rue surpassed a dozen composer colleagues in his creation of polyphony to meet the needs of the court and its extravagant liturgy. This study, the first ever in English, traces La Rue's life and career, explores aspects of his compositional output, and recounts the reawakening of modern scholarship to his unique contributions.

"It will long stand as the essential guide to La Rue, even as it opens the doors to deeper appreciations of his life and art.... It draws together in an encyclopedic way many details about La Rue's life and works, synthesizing both old and new findings. But it does so in ways that recognize that the story of La Rue's life and art is in some ways an open text, subject to new findings and new perspectives. For all these reasons the book will surely be welcomed by all serious students of Renaissance music."--Music & Letters
