director

This all-English programme of Renaissance masterpieces is a kind of Byrd sandwich. It features some very famous music by Tallis and Taverner, while showcasing a tour-de-force from the Eton Choirbook by Richard Davy alongside a beautiful set of Lamentations by the adopted English composer (and possible spy) Alfonso Ferrabosco.

Taverner’s Missa Western Wind is really a set of (36) variations on a theme which is so catchy one never tires of singing it. The whole set is a tribute to Taverner’s astonishing powers of invention and rare in that there was no precedent in his time for basing a sacred composition on a secular theme.
