Vox Luminis

Light and Shadow - Music at the time of Elizabeth I

Favourite a cappella works and lesser known gems from the Great English Renaissance by composers including Tallis, White, Sheppard, Byrd, Tomkins, Ramsey, Weelkes and Morley.

Choral at Cadogan 2015‑16

The series has grown from strength to strength over recent years and consistently presents the UK and Europe’s finest vocal groups.

The Tallis Scholars will again appear twice, the first concert consisting entirely of non-Latin works, which is unusual for them. This programme also celebrates John Rutter’s 70th birthday with performances of some of his lesser known choral works. Their second concert has an intense message and features Lamentations by Tallis, Nico Muhly and Phinot, as well as the premiere of Lamentations written for them by Matthew Martin.

For this season’s Christmas concert, it is a pleasure to welcome Daniel Hyde and the Choir of Magdalen College, Oxford, whose programme includes the festive Fantasia on Christmas Carols by Vaughan Williams.

Formidable British groups Tenebrae and Alamire, led by Nigel Short and David Skinner respectively, both return this season to present contrasting programmes of French music. Tenebrae perform Brumel’s Lamentations along with motets by Saint-Saëns, Duruflé and Poulenc, as well as the latter’s cantata Figure humaine, arguably the composer’s finest work. Alamire’s programme includes some of the finest music from Anne Boleyn’s Songbook interspersed with other motets and chansons by the greatest French composers of the 16th century.

And last but not least we welcome back Vox Luminis and its director Lionel Meunier with an a cappella Elizabethan English programme conceived around the subjects of Light and Shadow.
