Performers

Lionel Meunier
director

With this programme we have the opportunity to perform some of Lionel Meunier’s favourite a cappella works from the Great English Renaissance, arguably, the Golden Age of British Music. ‘Light’ in the context of this programme is reflected in the themes of birth, new beginning, day and joyfulness. ‘Shadow’, on the other hand, will see us singing about the more solemn, but no less rich subjects of death, ending and night. We are looking forward to sharing with you some of the most popular works from the reign of Queen Elizabeth I along with some lesser known gems.
