For many members of the Ripieno Choir a highlight of recent seasons was our performance of John Browne’s Stabat Mater from the Eton Choirbook. And so it was for the audience too. They came to hear Allegri’s famous setting of the Miserere, but left enthusing about the Browne. In this programme of sixteenth century renaissance music we offer another chance to hear Browne’s intricate, six-part, ‘audible cathedral’.
Alongside Browne, this programme will introduce Robert Wylkynson’s Salve Regina, also from the Eton Choirbook. He was ‘Instructor of the Choristers’ at Eton in the Choirbook’s heyday (1500-15) and although only four of his pieces survive it is clear that he was an ambitious composer. His Salve Regina is a sumptuous piece in nine parts (SSATTBarBarBB) and fourteen minutes long which contrasts rich and dramatic passages for the full forces with quieter two or three part sections. The manuscript of this work is visually spectacular and we will have a facsimile on display.
These will be complemented by some of John Taverner’s finest and most expressive motets, including the well-known Dum Transisset Sabbatum, and joyful Easter motets by William Byrd and Peter Philips
