A sequence of sacred pieces by Renaissance composers associated with Northwest Europe

We are privileged to sing in the magnificently frescoed private chapel of the Beauchamp Community. Most of our chosen composers travelled abroad. Some – Josquin, Lassus and Willaert – are well known. Others too wrote music of high quality, among them Peter Philips, who fled England to avoid religious persecution. Our programme includes the Gloria from Lassus’s mass Ad Imitationem Vinum Bonum and his Cantate Domino; Willaert’s Sancte Paule Apostole; and Philips’s anthem for double choir Ecce Vicit Leo.
