The subject of light – in all its manifestations – has been inspirational to composers for centuries. Collegium Musicum of London has created a short programme of celestial a capella harmononies for a spring evening of illuminated music-making this March, featuring works by Lassus, Tallis, Bruch, Elgar, Stanford, Sullivan, Parry together with more than a few popular surprises.

The fourth in a series of hour-long, drive-time concerts at its home in Clerkenwell, LUMINOSO represents an opportunity to experience London’s liveliest chamber choir over a free glass of wine, and complete your evening with a delicious meal at one of Exmouth Market’s excellent eateries.

Fresh from its success last November, with its Masters of Baroque programme at St James’s in Piccadilly, the choir looks forward to welcoming you for a dazzling evening of choral favourites from four centuries.

The Master's Apprentice

The Renaissance Singers
David Allinson, conductor




The inspired, poignant and powerful sacred music of Cipiano de Rore is infused with the spirit of his predecessor, Josquin. He frequently paid tribute to the Flemishmaster by referencing and reworking Josquin’s music, to rhapsodic and rhetorical effect.

In his secular music, de Rore was the greatest innovator of the mid-16th century: his chansons are suavely emotional and his madrigals are vivid and startling. Monteverdi regarded him as the originator of the seconda prattica.

2015 marks the 500th anniversary of de Rore’s birth – and the 450th anniversary of his death. To mark the occasion we sing his powerful madrigals and chansons – plus motets and music for the Mass, along with the Josquin ‘originals’ that inspired them.
