Friday Night Organ March 8th, a tragic day indeed.
Today is international gynocracy oppression day! A day to celebrate the parasitic transfer of power from men to women and the resulting disasters and catastrophes that are inevitable. As I mentioned in another thread I wish I could be as upbeat about my personal liberation as others. Sadly, although I am personally free of gynocentric manipulation the civilization painstakingly wrought by our fore FATHERS teeters on the brink of tragedy. Thanks to the stupidity and weakness of some “modern” men and the boundless avarice of women exploiting these “men” our civilization is doomed. Thus I offer the following: A Requiem Mass—a Mass said for the dead. And below we have the Requiem Missa pro defunctis of Johannes Ockeghem. IT is the oldest known requiem to come down to us and frankly it is the most beautiful. It was first celebrated on the death of Louis XI in 1483. I shall not comment further—the music speaks for itself.
Johannes Ockeghem (1410-1497) is often considered the most influential composer between Guillaume Dufay and Josquin des Prez. In addition to being a renowned composer, he was also an honored singer, choirmaster, and teacher. Born in Flanders Ockeghem spent the majority of his professional career in the employ of the French Royal Chapel. He served under three French kings, Charles VII, who honored him with the gift of a benefice as treasure of the Abbey of St. Martin de Tours, Louis XI, who made him a canon of Notre Dame in Paris and Charles VIII. Ockeghem died in Tours, France on February 6, 1497. To commemorate his death, Josquin des Prez composed the motet La déploration de la mort de Johannes Ockeghem, a setting of the poem Nymphes des bois by Jean Molinet. An unusually large number of laments appeared after Ockeghem's death. Some of the authors of these poems included Molinet and Desiderius Erasmus; Johannes Lupi provided another musical setting.
The second work is the Motet Intemerata Dei Mater
The Requiem Missa pro defunctis is very beautiful, indeed. Took your word for it, that it frankly is the most beautiful of them all.
Funny, how I´ve never heard before of one of - if not the most influential composer of the 15th century, even though he practically was born in the extended neighborhood, yet (weren´t it for me being so lazy with all the modern things) I should be able to name a dozen Pokémons by name and their special powers from the top of my head.
Great civilizations rise & fall like the sun is setting. A friendlier, more truthful and upbeat Zeitgeist may pick the cherries out of our bones and ashes.
