Miserere mei, Deus - motets of yearning and penitence

Renaissance Singers
David Allinson, conductor

Thomas Tallis: Miserere nostril
William Byrd: Miserere Mei, Deus
Christopher Tye: Ad te clamamus
Josquin des Prez: Miserere mei, Deus
Jean L'Héritier: Miserere mei, Deus
Nicolas Gombert: Media Vita
Nicolas Gombert: Lugebat David Absolom
Philippe de Monte: Super flumina Babylonis
Orlando Lassus: Infelix Ego

The season of Lent has always elicited heartfelt, emotive music from composers. Our programme of penitential masterpieces is built around Josquin’s hypnotic Miserere mei Deus, almost certainly written for Holy Week devotions at the Court of Ferrara in 1504. Equally emotive are Lheritier’s warmly humane setting of Miserere mei, Domine, Gombert’s plangent Media vita and Lassus’s engrossing, rhetorical setting of Infelix ego. With other motets by Gombert, Tye, Tallis and Rore, this is a rich and varied programme of superb Lenten music, some of which may be new even to seasoned early music aficionados.

Bach: B minor Mass

Collegium Musicum of London Chamber Choir
Greg Morris, conductor

Bach: B minor Mass

A cornerstone of the choral repertoire, Bach’s magnificent Mass in B minor was one of the composer’s last works, completed in 1749. The Mass gave new life to vocal music that Bach had composed throughout his career.

Despite its sheer scale and grandeur, Bach didn’t even name the work, and it existed only as a collection of loosely related manuscripts for many years, until it was performed in a single sitting for the first time in 1859, more than a century after the composer’s death. The Mass is now considered by many to be the true culmination of his life’s work.

St James’s, Piccadilly, provides an elegant backdrop to Collegium Musicum of London’s springtime concert. The choir is joined by a host of exceptional soloists and Baroque instrumentalists for this performance of what is perhaps Bach’s most profound and heartfelt work.
