Supersize Polyphony 360 Tour with the Armonico Consort

Supersize Polyphony 360 is a celebration of large-scale works from the 16th century, performed surrounding the audience. The unique programme features epic motets, such as Tallis’ Spem in Alium and Striggio’s Ecce Beatam Lucem, alongside the rarely performed 60 part Missa Ecco Si Beato Giorno. Interspersed with the serene beauty of ethereal chants by Hildegard of Bingen and other works from the period, it is an evening of such magnitude and polyphonic drama that cannot be missed.

Holy Week Concerts in Spain

Monteverdi’s famous setting of the Psalm Beatus vir opens this programme of music for soloists, choir and string trio. Kerll’s Missa in fletu is one of the most powerful settings of the Mass text from the 17th century with some extreme chromaticism; it was written while the composed himself was besieged in Vienna. Leo’s Miserere is a complete setting of the famous Lenten Psalm in which the composer pays tribute to the Palestrina style of sacred vocal music, though enriched with early 18th-century harmonies. Each concert concludes with Carissimi’s celebrated oratorio Jephte, in the version with violins, telling the tragic tale from the Old Testament.
