The Grand Renaissance Tour

Political and religious upheaval, philosophical turbulence, and scientific innovation all made Renaissance and Baroque Europe a melting pot of ideas, resulting in some of the greatest music and art in Western history. In this programme we will take you on a Grand Tour of Europe, taking in the musical “sights and sounds” of France, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Italy, and even a glimpse of music from the “New World”. Shining a light on some lesser-known works by well-known composers of the era, we are particularly pleased to be giving the UK premier performance of Francisco Valls’ Missa Quinti toni.

Part the first:

England and Spain - Featuring music by King Henry VIII, Victoria, Weelkes, Cabezon and more.

Part the second:

Italy and Germany - Featuring music by Guami, Hassler, Massaino, Praetorius and more.

Some of the music being performed has not been heard since composition in the 16th and 17th century and will be being premiered on the night. 

Refreshments will be provided in the interval and there will be a retiring collection towards the church and the future endeavours of the consort.
