Distant Mirror: Aug. 4 - Tournai Mass

Aug 4, 2017

The Tournai Mass (late 13th-mid 14th centuries)  is the first complete mass that we know of, that is, the first mass with a fixed ordinary. although each movement was composed by a different anonymous scribe. A performance by the Trio Mediaeval. There are also several ricercari and salterelli  by Giovanni Maria da Crema  (mid 16th century) from his 1546 book of lute pieces, featuring lutenist Christopher Wilson. And we'll conclude with music written by Henry VIII of England, the suite "Rose without a Thorn" which he wrote while wooing Anne Boleyn. The Philip Jones Brass Ensemble performs.  Join Allan Kelly Friday night at 10 on Distant Mirror.
