The Earliest English Music on Friday's Distant Mirror

Aug 31, 2017

Legendary countertenor Russell Oberlin performs the 12th century St. Godric Songs, the earliest  English sacred music  that we  know of.  He is accompanied on viol by Seymour Barab.  And there are 14th century English sacred and secular pieces performed by the Hilliard Ensemble. That's followed by what may be the most famous choral work of the 16th century, Spem in Alium of Thomas Tallis performed, of course, by the Tallis Scholars.  Join   Allan Kelly Friday Night at 10.
