The Cardinall’s Musick is a highly successful and innovative ensemble, known for its extensive study and performance of English Renaissance music. Share in some of the finest music written for the ensemble in recent years, as well as masterpieces of the 16th Century.
Among the many exciting pieces that the ensemble will be performing on Friday 14 June, one is a world premiere: a piece by Anglo-American composer Paul Crabtree. Crabtree, who has been called “one of our most inventive and wickedly witty composers” (Chicago Classical Review), will be attending the concert. His offering to the Cardinall’s programme is a work in memory of the British novelist and philosopher Iris Murdoch.
The programme includes Palestrina’s stunning Magnificat, Nico Muhly’s powerful setting of medieval words, and William Byrd’s thrilling motet Laudibus in Sanctis. The Cardinall’s Musick will be joined by the Chamber Choir of The Portsmouth Grammar School.
