I've seen a few pictures of Josquin dez Prez & in every one he's wearing something on his head that looks like a turban. Why though, when he was from Flanders?

Perhaps he was bald and ashamed of that?
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Josquin appears to be wearing a Chaperon, a type of headgear popular back then.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaperon_(headgear)

(I haven't had any success getting this link to work. You'll have to google Chaperon (headgear) yourself to get the article)

Chaperon (IPA: [??æp??ro?n]; Middle French: chaperon) was a form of hood or, later, highly versatile hat worn in all parts of Western Europe in the Middle Ages. Initially a utilitarian garment, it first grew a long partly decorative tail behind, and then developed into a complex, versatile and expensive headgear after what was originally the vertical opening for the face began to be used as a horizontal opening for the head. It was especially fashionable in mid-15th century Burgundy, before gradually falling out of fashion in the late 15th century and returning to its utilitarian status. It is the most commonly worn male headgear in Early Netherlandish painting, but its complicated construction is often misunderstood.

Is that why Finns wear hats?

In lots of other places, headwear is actually a subset of fashion  8)

Chaperon

Somehow the forum software drops the close-parens.

Finns wear hats because it's cold up here in the north.  ;)

Looks like a dead cat.

Did the Flems hate cats?

in Flanders we love our cats! This is my brothers cat "Arthur", listening to Stravinsky's Petrouchka with the newest Cat-pod.

And we never wear them as hats!

I must admit "only very rarely" - par exemple, when we are going to the opera!

Take that back, now.  >:(

Judging by your avatar, you're right. It looks more like he got stuck walking through a curtain, and pulled it down on his head as he freed himself.

You can make your own chaperon!

Gee, I thought Josquin was "futuristic" in that he was wearing what is today called  a "doorag"

I'm glad this discussion is supplanting the Elgar thread.

Supplanting? No, more like paralleling.
