Product details

"Innsbruck, ich muss dich lassen" ("Innsbruck, I Must Leave You") is a Renaissance song by the Franco-Flemish composer Heinrich Isaac (1450-1517); the melody was probably written by him. The lyricist is unknown; an authorship of Emperor Maximilian I, as was previously assumed, seems highly unlikely. The song is famously associated with the city of Innsbruck in Tyrol (in modern-day Austria). The lyrics express sorrow at having to leave a post at court, as the singer is forced to abandon his love and to depart to a foreign country. He promises her faithfulness and recommends her to God's protection.

I composed this setting originally for solo 'cello, reworking it for the wonderful Marimba playing of Andrew Castles in March 2017.
