  • The Tallis Scholars
Peter Phillips

This all-Spanish programme focuses on three of the greatest names from the renaissance period. The main work is a substantial 6-voice mass setting by Morales, based on a chanson by Josquin. Music of this beauty and complexity from the early Spanish Renaissance is not so often performed, and may come as an eye-opener to those more familiar with High Renaissance practice.

The second half similarly contains some resplendent 6-voice music – again rare in some cases, and again fascinating. Alonso Lobo’s epic Lamentations are a case in point. The concert ends with Victoria’s irrepressible double-choir Magnificat.
