Josquin des Prez's jovial "El Grillo" speaks of the "splendid singer," the Cricket; this has sometimes been supposed to refer to one of Josquin's musical colleagues, the singer Carlo Grillo. Or perhaps the text describes the song of cricket (the insect) who sometimes sings "only for love". Either way, Josquin shows his wit and skill in a humorous way we can all appreciate. Listen to the MP3 recording by The Brethren Brass for a "real" and accurate performance.
