Inspired by the traditional 'grand tour' made by young British aristocrats from the seventeenth century onwards, Londinium embarks on an intrepid journey around some of Europe's foremost musical centres. Our route follows a typical grand tourist's itinerary: after leaving London for Paris, we make a perilous Alpine crossing to explore the treasures of Italy, before returning home by way of Vienna.

On our travels we encounter a dazzling array of repertoire - everything from the polyphony of Renaissance Rome to the polychoral splendour of Venice, the Neapolitan Baroque, echoes of Wagner's 'Tristan', the seductive soundworld of fin-de-si&engrave;cle Vienna, the sophistication of Debussy, and the music of our own time. Particular highlights include Clytus Gottwald's sumptuous transcriptions of Wagner and Mahler, Judith Bingham's bewitching 'Gleams of a Remoter World', the UK première of Matthew Recio's 'How to Survive Vesuvius', and - marking the quincentenary of the death of its protagonist - Eric Whitacre's hugely entertaining 'Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine'.

O beata Trinitas: Renaissance music for Father, Son and Holy Ghost

Renaissance Singers
David Allinson, conductor

A central tenet of Christian belief is that there is one creator, who is simultaneously Father, Son and Holy Ghost — the formulation so familiar from the Creed, and in countless prayers, that it may pass almost without a thought. The mysterious and frequently-misunderstood concept is celebrated on Trinity Sunday, one of the few major feasts in the calendar that celebrates a doctrine rather than an event or individual. In music, the concept became linked with the harmony of the major triad.

Join us for this programme of sublime mass music and motets in honour of the Trinity written during the Renaissance period, by composers from England (Tallis, Sheppard, Byrd), the low countries (Josquin, de Rore), Italy (Palestrina) and Iberia and the New World (Guerrero, Victoria, Lopez Castillas).
