Chichester Cathedral Lady Chapel, Chichester, PO19 1PX


Adapted from a lecture recital given in Christchurch, New Zealand, NMH explore the rich musical tapestry left behind by the turbulence of the Tudor age. Weaving Byrd’s anguished Ave Verum with Tallis’ plaintive If ye love me, and inspiring music by Cornysh, Taverner, Tallis and Gibbons; we hear how the chaos of the English Reformation gave rise to the enduring masterpieces of the English Renaissance.
