Join vocal consort The Gesualdo Six at Boxgrove Priory on Friday 3 January 2020 at 6pm for a beautiful programme of music for Epiphany.
“The Gesualdo Six are outstanding, shifting impeccably from Renaissance polyphony to twenty-first-century music.” – Seen and Heard International
For centuries Christmas and the surrounding seasons have inspired composers to new heights of invention. Morning Star features renaissance and contemporary music sung around the plainsong propers of a mass for Epiphany.
The programme will include Cornelius The Three Kings, Sally Beamish In the stillness, Byrd Praise our Lord all ye Gentiles and works by Judith Bingham, Cecilia McDowall, Arvo Pärt and Palestrina.
“Weavers of rich and plangent aural tapestries, The Gesualdo Six meld style and substance with beguiling sure-footedness.” – BBC Music Magazine

Cornelius, Peter – The Three Kings
Eccard, Johannes – When to the Temple Mary went
