Directed by Simon Ravens
Founding director Simon Ravens returns for the ﬁrst time since 2006 to conduct John Taverner’s Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas, a truly epic composition that features exceptionally wide ranges for its six parts. The stunning Benedictus of the Mass inspired countless instrumental pieces – this concert will feature two of these In Nomines played by Douglas Mews on the organ. Former members of The Tudor Consort will join the current choir to present works by John Sheppard and a specially composed work by Simon Ravens.
This concert was part of the 2016 Subscription Series.
