FUTURE PERFORMANCES

A concert investigating Nicholas Gombert and the Northern European ‘pervading imitation’ polyphonic style, culminating in Monteverdi’s stunning Missa ‘In illo tempore’. The mass is based on Gombert’s motet of the same name and demonstrates Monteverdi’s mastery of Northern style when he was eyeing up a certain job in Venice.

LASSUS IN THE BAVARIAN COURT

Puebla Cathedral.PNG

The Spanish conquest of Central Mexico in the early sixteenth-century is one of the defining moments of the early modern period. A hundred years on and Puebla (south of Mexico City) has a grand new cathedral, and the expertise and funds to instigate a musical tradition to rival its European counterparts. In this concert we will examine the music that was exported to Puebla and indeed the superb output of the Pueblan composer José Padilla Sánchez. But at what cost?

MUSIC FOR A NEW WORLD

Rome.jpg

In the closing years of Palestrina’s life (d.1594), seven composers (including Palestrina) collaborated to compose the huge triple-choir Missa ‘Cantantibus organis’: a joint tribute to S Cecilia and Palestrina himself. In this concert we will be performing this rarely-heard and virtuosic Mass, and investigate the output of all seven composers who contributed to this most unusual project.
