Incipit lamentacio

MMA exterior



The dark side of the Renaissance in the Dimitri Mitropoulos Hall: Jason Marmaras and the Schola Cantorum Sancti Pauli approach the apocryphal Elizabethan masterpieces in reverential awe: works by Thomas Tallis, Robert Whyte, and William Byrd. An unusual mixture of mystical texts and otherworldly dissonances. Surprising music of a unique era, with an emphasis upon a historically informed rendering, even in matters of local pronunciations of English and Latin. A rare opportunity to hear psalms, lamentations, and anthems of a landmark era: the restoration of the autonomy of the Church of England through the breach with Rome, and the recognition of its distinct ritual and musical character.
