Lili Boulanger: Soir sur la plaine

Londinium marks the centenaries of the deaths of Claude Debussy and Lili Boulanger by plunging into the heady world of early twentieth-century French choral music. Lili Boulanger, the first woman to win the prestigious Prix de Rome, lived for just 24 years; her prodigious talent is nowhere clearer than in her luxuriant and often-ecstatic works for choir and piano, far too rarely performed today. We pair Debussy's classic 'Trois Chansons de Charles d'Orleans' with virtuosic transcriptions of his songs and piano music by the masterful arranger Clytus Gottwald, and our programme is completed with works by Faure, Ravel, and the perennially popular 'Quatre Motets sur des themes gregoriens' by Maurice Durufle.

Above the stars: the genius of the English Verse Anthem

Renaissance Singers
Chelys Consort of Viols
David Allinson, conductor

Join us for a summer's evening of emotive, evocative and joyful sacred music by the astonishingly talented generation of English composers that came to maturity in the decades around 1600. During this period composers of Anglican church music came to write more 'verse' music - for viol consort, solo voices and choir - than full anthems. The burgeoning idiom permitted more vivid text setting, new dramatic possibilities and an expanded range of scoring colours.

Among established masterpieces by Gibbons and Tomkins we are excited to include unknown anthems by Michael East, and to be giving a rare performance of John Milsom’s reconstruction of Tomkin's O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance - a raw cry of protest at events unfolding in Worcester during the mid-17th century. The choral items will be interspersed with Fantasias and In Nomines by Byrd, Gibbons and East, played by the world-class Chelys Consort.
