I have a habit of setting up a soundtrack for each board game that we play often. Obviously the idea is to get to the proper mood and enhance the experience.
Now, despite that we don't play it often, my task would be to set up music for Here I Stand. I would appreciate hints towards proper albums etc. Naturally I've been already hunting to some Gregorian music, choir stuff feels appropriate.
You're feeling dizzy... Now all your boardgames belong to me!!!
During this period, you have plenty of interesting music in Italy (look for madrigals, and especially Cipriano di Rore). This is also the period of Franco-Flemish composers: look for the music of Obrecht, Josquin des Prés, Willaert, Gombert (and just before 1500, Ockeghem) - later Roland de Lassus. There is also Clément Janequin, who wrote many songs. Other names: Zarlino, Merulo, Luzzaschi, and later Gesualdo, Palestrina (writing in the 'tradition' of the Renaissance music) and Monteverdi (the 'modern' school). In England you have Robert Fayrfax, Thomas Tallis (composer of Henry VIII), then later William Byrd, John Bull and John Dowland.
