18.45: Doors open (Main Entrance) and pre-concert drinks
Designed to complement our Madonnas and Miracles exhibition, this programme explores a different tradition of musicmaking from the grand polyphony of the chapel and cathedral. The Italian lauda (sacred song) provided a rich resource of music and poetry for domestic musical devotion at all levels - from simple, unaccompanied renditions to elaborate polyphony; yet it also influenced the most sophisticated composers of the age. Hear The Clerks vocal ensemble, specialists in the consort music of the Renaissance, perform traditional song, including laude from the collections of Ottaviano Petrucci and Serafino Razzi, and motets by Josquin Des Prez and Palestrina.
