Sea Change

Londinium
Andrew Griffiths, conductor

Howard Skempton: The Flight of Song
Giaches de Wert: Ascendente Jesu in naviculam
Edvard Grieg: Ave maris stella
Johannes Brahms: Vineta
Richard Rodney Bennett: Sea Change
Hubert Parry: Crossing the Bar
Jaakko Mäntyjärvi: Canticum Calamitatis Maritimae
Thomas Campion: Never weather-beaten sail
Gabriel Jackson: A ship with unfurled sails
Samuel Coleridge-Taylor: Sea Drift
Ralph Vaughan Williams: The Dark Eyed Sailor
Gustav Holst: I love my love
Gustav Holst: Swansea Town

Inspired by Richard Rodney Bennett's classic 'Sea Change', a virtuoso evocation of the mystery and majesty of the ocean, Londinium voyages through a stunning selection of music connected with the sea. Along the way we encounter shipwreck (in Mäntyjärvi's haunting 'Canticum Calamitatis Maritimae'), myths and legends (Coleridge-Taylor's ghoulish 'Sea Drift' and Brahms' 'Vineta'), folksongs and shanties, and explore sea journeys as a rich source of metaphor, both religious and secular. The repertoire ranges from sixteenth-century Italy to the present day, and includes music by Wert, Campion, Parry, Grieg, Vaughan Williams, Holst, Gabriel Jackson and Howard Skempton.

Thomas Ashwell: Missa Ave Maria and a Tudor garland for Mary

Renaissance Singers
David Allinson, director

Thomas Ashwell: Missa Ave Maria
John Sheppard: Gaude, Gaude, Gaude Maria

A once-in-a-lifetime chance to hear a live performance of the outstandingly fine Missa Ave Maria, written by the man who almost certainly taught John Taverner when he was a chorister at Tattershall College. Only two works by Ashwell survive complete, but they are thrilling: this rich, florid mass setting for six voices comes close to matching the monumental splendour of Taverner's celebrated Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas.

Hedged around with motets in honour of the Virgin Mary by contemporaries and successors including Taverner, Tallis and Sheppard, this programme will be a Tudor treat for May, the traditional month of Mary.
