Music for Compline
This concert is a private event for guests of Martin Randall Travel. Those interested in following the entire itinerary may find details here.
As the darkness folded around the pillars of their churches, mediaeval worshippers gathered for the service of Compline, commending themselves to God’s protection through the long watches of the night. It was an occasion that inspired the great English composers to some of their most intimate and uplifting music. This magical programme of Compline music ranges from exquisitely simple hymns to breathtakingly complex webs of polyphony, culminating in John Taverner’s thrilling votive antiphon, Ave Dei patris filia. Much of the repertoire is taken from Stile Antico’s GRAMMY-nominated debut recording Music for Compline, winner of the 2007 Diapason d’or de l’année for Early Music.
