The Sixteen at Norwich Cathedral
The programme consisted of Praeter rerum seriem - Josquin, Gloria from Missa et ecce terrae motus - Brumel, O Virgo prudentissima - Josquin, Magnificat secundi toni super Praeter rerum seriem - Lassus, Aurora lucis rutilat - Lassus, Huc me sydereo - Josquin - Timor et tremor - Lassus, Sanctus from Missa et ecce terrae motus - Brumel and Magnificat octavi toni super Aurora lucis rutilat - Lassus.
The Earth Resounds celebrates the music of Brumel, Josquin and Lassus who were three of the towering figures of the Franco-Flemish Renaissance. All tickets for this amazing event were sold as The Sixteen brought us a brilliant performance on a night to remember with a programme centred around movements from Brumel's Missa et ecce terrae motus. The sacred music of 15th and 16th Century Flanders made for an evening of expressive and beautiful music with a performance of the highest quality from The Sixteen and Harry Christophers.
