Beverley Minster

Beverley Minster


This programme, presented by festival favourites, The Tallis Scholars, is inspired by the music represented within the Festival Exhibition. Alamire
published many of Josquin’s masses - the Missa Malheur me bat being one of the most famous. Based on a chanson, possibly by Ockeghem, it is for
four voices until the final movement, when it blossoms into six. Its complex canons continued to be talked about by theorists for over a hundred
years, and are models of the art. The remaining pieces are mostly for five voices,sandwiched between masterpieces by Byrd. Browne’s O regina mundi clara, from the Eton Choirbook, is exceptional in having ten separate voiceparts, including four tenors, all of them with dramatically high
tessituras. The concert will highlight the architectural majesty of the Minster through the exquisite beauty of singers who are renowned world-wide
for their perfect understanding of these 16th century masterpieces
