Light and Shadow

Artistic Director Lionel Meunier

Tallis O nata lux; Videte miraculum
Robert WhiteChriste, qui lux es et dies
John Sheppard In manus tuas; In pace
William Byrd Ave verum corpus
Thomas Tomkins When David heard
Robert Ramsey How are the Mighty Fall’n
Thomas Weelkes Death hath deprived me
Thomas Morley Funeral Sentences

Weaving a magical spell in the darkened splendour of All Saints Church, the acclaimed Belgian a cappella choir Vox Luminis performs works from the English Renaissance in this atmospheric late-night concert. From light – exemplified by themes of birth, new beginnings, day and joyfulness – to the shadow of death, endings and night, some of the most popular works from the reign of Elizabeth I jostle alongside lesserknown gems from the golden age of English music.
