The Music of Orlando Gibbons

The Music of Orlando Gibbons

Tenebrae Consort is delighted to collaborate with the world-class viol consort, Phantasm, for this programme of music by Orlando Gibbons.

Gibbons was a towering figure, whose anthems are among the most passionately lyrical of any English music before Purcell. This programme includes some of his sublime viol consorts and unforgettable a cappella choral music. It culminates in performances of three of the extraordinarily expressive verse anthems which affirm his greatness as a composer.


Almighty and everlasting God
Drop, drop slow tears
Lift up your heads
Behold thou hast made my days
This is the record of John
Go from my window
O Lord in thy wrath
O clap your hands
See, see the Word is incarnate
The Silver Swan
Fantasias, In Nomines, Galliards and
Pavans for 3, 4 and 6 viols
