Performers

I Fagiolini
Robert Hollingworth
director

Robert Hollingworth introduces the programme:
‘Prepare your tastebuds for an assault on the senses through Renaissance Europe. From France, amuses-bouches both suave and Rabelasian include John Fulljames’ staging of Janequin’s celebrated Le chant des oyseaulx. Cross the Pyrenees for foot-tapping tapas and an actual ensalada (implying a mix of languages and dance steps) with strong Pythonesque overtones. Via the Mediterranean to Italy with a beautiful sweep of works including Willaert’s eulogy to a famous Venetian singer and Striggio’s ode to the ‘leopard’, Queen Elizabeth I. This aural feast ends with a selection from Monteverdi’s finest vintage: 1603 and his incomparable fourth book of madrigals.’

Part of Choral at Cadogan 2012/13

The Tallis Scholars

English masterpieces by Robert Fayrfax and Thomas Tallis, including Fayrfax's virtuoso Missa Tecum principium.

The Tallis Scholars

The award-winning choir celebrates its own anniversary as well as the unusual genius of Carlo Gesualdo.

The Choir of Merton College, Oxford

Renaissance works contrast with contemporary pieces written specially for them from the Merton Choirbook.

The Choir of Westminster Abbey

A delightfully varied Christmas programme, including Britten's magical A Ceremony of Carols, and Renaissance masterpieces alongside contemporary gems and audience carols.

Tenebrae

A programme based around the beautiful music of Will Todd and music that inspires his writing, including Bernstein's Chichester Psalms.

Alamire

Boasting some of the finest consort singers in the world, Alamire traces the evolution of Early Tudor polyphony, culminating with masterworks by Tallis and Byrd.

‘If there’s a more enterprisingly theatrical vocal group than this one, I’ve yet to encounter it’
