Love's Command — Sacred Poetry & Music

Saturday, January 26, 2019, 8pm

Church of St. Mary the Virgin

This event has ended.

With performances described as “simultaneously ravishing and reverential” by the Los Angeles Times, the London-based Orlando Consort returns to perform a collection of sublime sacred music from the first part of the 16th century. The period is marked by unprecedented richness in music, with text settings that often went beyond the confines of the usual daily liturgy. Joined for this concert by bass Robert Macdonald, the Consort performs a program of works by Josquin des Prez, Clemens non Papa, Nicolas Gombert, and others, concluding with Lamentations by English Tudor composer Robert White.

Please note: This event occurs at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin.
