Nos Miseri Homines

T.L.da Victoria – Requiem 1605
J. S. Bach – Komm, Jesu, komm
J. S. Bach – Ich lasse dich nicht
William Byrd – Emendemus in melius
Tallis – In jejunio

Nos Miseri Homines perform Victoria’s final, poignant work, which has been described as the masterpiece of the Spanish Renaissance. Beautiful plainchant melodies are woven throughout the work – either exposed by a solo voice or wrapped in sumptuous choral writing to create a work of mesmerising beauty, which will ring around the staggering acoustic of St Paul’s Church.

Set alongside two other masterpieces by J.S. Bach – in particular his monumental eight-part motet, Komm, Jesu, komm – an uplifting plea for the coming of Jesus.

Following an inspiring performance of Bach Magnificat in Chichester Cathedral, Nos Miseri Homines are once again joining our friends three parts vied for Reflections – a series of concerts for Lent. Featuring outstanding instrumentalists and singers performing powerful and evocative music in beautiful surroundings, we hope you will join us for a meditative and restorative series of concerts.
