Just as the Netherlandish visual arts enlisted symbolism to express complex moral messages, as in Hieronymus Bosch’s famous Haycart of circa 1485, so did Netherlandish polyphonic music. “Flemish Musical Mastery in the Age of Bosch and Bloemaert” traces Netherlandish musical style from its beginnings in the music of Guillaume Du Fay, a contemporary of Rogier van der Weyden, to its final flowering in the works of Orlande de Lassus and Giaches de Wert.
