Flemish composer Josquin Desprez (c. 1440-1521) was considered by many to be the greatest composer of his generation.  Ave Maria…Virgo serena exhibits Josquin’s mastery of intricate contrapuntal procedures in service of a higher ideal: the expression of emotion.  A fine recording of this piece is available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUAgAF4Khmg
