    CLARE WILKINSON mezzo

    MUSICA TRANSALPINA

    In 1588 a radical publication brought music from continental Europe to the attention of an avid Elizabethan audience. Musica Transalpina was a book of madrigals and chansons with specially written texts in English, and it soon became a new repertory for viol consort as well – not only had it changed places, it had been changed by its time. The Rose Consort dip into this repertory to present madrigals by Marenzio, Palestrina and Ferrabosco alongside chansons by Lassus and songs and instrumental pieces by William Byrd.

    “For two decades, Emma Kirkby’s clear, agile voice has epitomised the pure sound of early music. She remains one of the treasures of the music world.” Toronto Globe and Mail
