Lamentations I

Matthew Martin
Lamentations (world premiere)
The Silver Swan
O Lord, in thy wrath


Peter Phillips

The title of this varied programme is taken from Gibbons’ ineffable The Silver Swan, to which I invited Matthew Martin to add a pendant in 2013. Since then I also asked him to write a set of Lamentations, which will be receiving its world premiere tonight. In addition, Nico Muhly’s Lamentations were commissioned by the Lincoln Center in New York for us – so there is a small tradition going there. The Tallis and Phinot Lamentations further amplify this penitential mood. Cornysh’s astonishing, wonderfully florid Magnificat closes the programme.
