Event description

Description

This programme follows English polyphony from the dawn to the dusk of the 15th century, seeking out a variety of styles from English composers writing and working in different regions during this period. The programme includes both sacred and secular polyphonic treasures, including works by Dunstaple, Roy Henry, Frye, Horwood, Cornysh, Wylkynson, and more.

The Dissolution of the Monasteries in England between 1536 and 1541 saw the destruction of a great number of English music manuscripts. Much of the English sacred music which survives from the 15th century is therefore transmitted solely in continental sources. There are a few exceptions, such as the wonderful Eton Choirbook, which gives us a tantalising glimpse into the repertory of sacred music which must have circulated in England at this time, most of which is now lost.

Tickets £15 Standard, £5 Student
