A Lassus Calendar

a year with Lassus

Saturday 23 March 2024   
7.30 pm
St Pancras Church
165 Euston Road
London NW1 2BA
Guest conductor: Patrick Allies

Join us on a journey through the liturgical seasons - both joyful and miserable! - with arguably the most inventive composer of the 16th century.

 

Patrick has chosen music that illustrates Lassus' creative brilliance and variety, ranging from exquisite and melancholy 5-part Lamentations for Holy Week, to vibrant polychoral music in eight and ten parts for Easter and some Marian feasts.

 

Perhaps most unusual, and rarely performed, is his Prophetae Sibyllarum, a series of adventurous, highly chromatic motets for Advent. They sound like Poulenc...
