Platinum Consort explores music written in honour of the Virgin Mary. Central to the programme is John Tavener’s Mother and Child. This meditative work for choir, organ and temple gong celebrates the miracle of childbirth and also Mary’s universality as Mother of all. The music of Josquin des Prez, the central figure of the Franco-Flemish school of polyphony, is another main feature of this programme. His masterful technique and overarching, expansive polyphony create an all-embracing sound world, appropriate for celebrating the eternal Mother.
