The Romantic Legacy of Renaissance Polyphony

This programme takes us on a spiritual and historical journey, beginning in Renaissance Spain and Italy with the sublime music of Lobo, Victoria and Allegri, before moving westwards to Mexico for Padilla’s ‘Missa ego flos campi’.

The second half of the concert features the music of German craftsmen Brahms, Bruckner and Reger, giving an insight that much of their inspiration originates not only from the counterpoint of Bach, but from the expressive polyphony of their Renaissance predecessors.

Alonso Lobo Versa est in luctum
Tomás Luis de Victoria Tenebrae Responsories (selection)
Gregorio Allegri Miserere mei, Deus
Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla Missa Ego flos campi (without Credo)
