Miserere: Renaissance Lamentations

Sunday, 21 February, 2021 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Miserere: Renaissance Lamentations

Live From London: Spring

Streamed online until 30 Apr

Stile Antico returns to Live From London with a mouthwatering selection of Renaissance music marking the Lenten season. The group performs masterpieces by Byrd, Tallis and Sheppard alongside highly expressive motets by Lassus, Victoria and de Monte, interspersed with the timeless sound of plainchant. Crowning this glorious programme are the famed Allegri ‘Miserere’ and Robert White’s heartbreaking five-part setting of the Lamentations of Jeremiah: truly one of the wonders of the Renaissance.

Byrd: Miserere mei
Tallis: Purge me O Lord
De Monte: Super Flumina Babylonis
Allegri: Miserere
Sheppard: I give you a new commandment
Lassus: In monte oliveti
Victoria: O vos omnes
Victoria: Tenebrae factae sunt
White: Lamentations a 5

interspersed with plainchant from the Lent Prose
