We performed motets by Spanish composers Guerrero, Lobo, Robledo and Victoria; the Creed from Byrd's Mass for Four Voices; and a heartfelt motet for double choir by Philippe de Monte, Super flumina Babylonis.

Also Drop, drop, slow tears, with Gibbons's sublime music; and the original version of Tallis's Canon, God graunt wyth grace.

The programme was completed with Palestrina's famous double choir Stabat Mater and a fascinating setting by Josquin of Agnus Dei from his Mass based on L'homme armé.
