The Lamenting Lowlands

Odes and elegies of the Franco-Flemish Renaissance

Orlando Chamber Choir
Richard Wilberforce, director

Thursday 21 March 2013, 19:30
St Andrew Holborn [ map ]
5 St Andrew Street, London EC4A 3AB

A concert tracing the sweet sadness of Franco-Flemish odes and elegies, in which some of the greatest Renaissance composers saved their most exquisite music to honour and celebrate a colleague, teacher or friend. The programme features the richly sonorous Requiem by Richafort with its filigree lines of flowing polyphony as well as vibrant and intricate works by Dufay, Josquin and Gombert, full of celebratory innovations and virtuosic experiments.
