Vox in Rama: Lamentations by Phinot and White

David Allinson, director
Renaissance Singers, choir

Dominique Phinot: Lamentations of Jeremiah
Robert White: Lamentations of Jeremiah
George Kirby: Vox in Rama
Carlo Gesualdo: O Vos Omnes
William Byrd: Ne irascaris Domine

The Lamentations of Jeremiah inspired some of the most soulful polyphony ever written. Direct, dramatic settings of the verses alternate with lush vocal roulades. We present two of the greatest 16th century Lamentation settings, by Dominique Phinot and Robert White.

White’s astonishing Lamentations a5 are advanced in style for their time and feel like a despairing commentary on the religious turbulence of Elizabethan England. Phinot’s setting is equally pioneering, for the way he manages the double choir texture, starting with block textures but gradually opening up a kaleidoscopic range of subtle scoring combinations.

These two monumental pieces will be complemented by penitential motets by composers including George Kirby (Vox in Rama), Carlo Gesualdo (O vos omnes) and William Byrd (Ne irascaris) - music that crystallises sorrow and longing but also kindles humanity, hope and consolation.

On Valentine’s Day, in the heart of London, join us for a romantic, candlelit evening in the stunning St James’s Church, Piccadilly with the Piccadilly Sinfonietta and pianist and Artistic Director, Warren Mailley-Smith.

The concert features timeless works by the monumental composers, Mozart, Handel, Bach, and Vivaldi. If you’re looking for a special evening with your Valentine, in need of a relaxing experience, want to learn more about classical music, or just want to hear virtuosic performances by some of the best, young performers in the UK, this concert is just for you.

The Piccadilly Sinfonietta is one of the UK’s most exciting young ensembles. Founded in 2018, the ensemble has performed in halls throughout the UK including London, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Manchester and further afield. The Piccadilly Sinfonia exists to perform the world’s greatest classical music in the UK’s most historic venues.

The concert features breath-taking feats of virtuosity in Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and the “stunning” playing of pianist Warren Mailley-Smith in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 12 in A major.

Award-winning concert pianist and a favourite performer for the British Royal Family, Warren Mailley-Smith, recently became the first British pianist to perform Chopin’s complete works from memory. An exceptional talent and a self-deprecating sense of humour, combined with his formidable technical skill and mature musicality, makes him a favourite with audiences.

So why not treat yourself to a spectacular evening and join us for a concert to remember of uplifting music.
