The Gesualdo Six, directed by Owain Park, perform a diverse selection of works for the festive season, juxtaposing modern works by composers including Cheryl Frances-Hoad and Jonathan Harvey with renaissance masterpieces by Byrd and Praetorius. The concert features Thomas Tallis’s Videte Miraculum, a choral respond which exhibits plainchant both in a solo capacity and as part of a beautifully woven six-part polyphonic texture. The group will also perform a setting of Francis Quarles’s On the Infancy of our Saviour, set to music by the group’s Director, alongside arrangements by Brian Kay and Philip Lawson.
This concert will finish at approximately 2pm.
The Temple Winter Festival is presented by Hazard Chase in association with the Temple Music Foundation.
