About Faulte d’Argent

This week we are offering a brass quintet transcription of Faulte d’Argent by Josquin des Pres as a free download. It is the third of four direct transcriptions that I have done as part of a series. The series is designed to help brass composers get an inside feel for melodic writing within a contrapuntal context.

Most counterpoint arrangements are not true to the original voices. For this series, I wanted to avoid changing the original parts in any way at all. This way, the performers get to experience the original melodies in their purest form.
