The English Motets

During the renaissance, musical composition flourished, but it was a time of great change, fuelled by religious division. This programme traces music written by some of the English renaissance masters over a period of two-hundred years, encompassing florid medieval-sounding works by Forest and Sheppard, intricately woven polyphonic works by Tallis and Byrd, and the beautiful simplicity of Tomkins and White.

“Ingeniously programmed and impeccably delivered, with that undefinable excitement that comes from a group of musicians working absolutely as one.” Gramophone

We are grateful to The Gesualdo Six for kindly stepping into Ensemble Clement Janequin’s vocal shoes on this occasion due to the current travel restrictions, and continued uncertainty on when these might be lifted.
