Guillaume de Machaut is one of my absolute favorite composers. He was a composer of religious and secular pieces of polyphonic music in the 14th Century. Along with Josquin de Prez of the 15th century, Machaut was really the start of my interest in medieval culture. The modern day recordings we have of Machaut’s music are so wonderfully textural and beautiful that they are a frequent choice while I am painting. I wanted to produce a work in tribute of Machaut and this is it. I really don’t feel that it does the subject justice, so I plan to produce more in the future.
