Songs of love and parting: my bittersweet Valentine

Renaissance Singers, choir
David Allinson, conductor

Claudio Monteverdi: Era l’anima mia
Nicolas Gombert: Amy Soufferz

Philip van Winder: Amy Souffrez

William Mundy: Vox patris caelestis

As red roses wither and empty chocolate boxes are recycled, the Renaissance Singers take a wide-eyed, post-Valentine's Day tour through the ecstasies and agonies of love. With a programme mixing languages and genres, we move from suave chansons to pained madrigals and on to passionate motets setting verses from the Song of Songs.

With the UK set to leave the European Union in March 2019 (at the time of writing), the programme may take on something of a valedictory air, with music from across Renaissance Europe – Italy (Palestrina), Spain (Victoria), France and the Low Countries (Gombert, Crecquillon, Lheritier). We conclude on home territory, with a performance of perhaps the last great Tudor votive antiphon, William Mundy’s monumental Vox patris caelestis.
