Based on New York Polyphony’s acclaimed 2010 Avie Records release, Tudor City is ‘a stunning tour through chant, polyphony, and renaissance harmonies’ (American Public Media). An allusion to the historic New York neighbourhood, Tudor City highlights the works of English composers active during the reign of the Tudor dynasty (1485-1603), effortlessly interspersed new works written for the quartet by Andrew Smith.

The second half of the programme explores works for male voices by Schubert and Finzi, as well as two commissioned works by American composer, Gregory Brown, and ending with Clement Janequin’s lively depiction of the Battle of Marignan in ‘La Guerre’.
