'Of a rose is all my song'
08 March 2015, 8pm
In March we return to the Oslo Church Music Festival with a new a cappella programme celebrating the Virgin Mary – appropriately enough, performed on International Women’s Day 2015! ‘Of a rose is all my song’ is a programme that will feature prominently in our diary in the coming seasons and includes two of the great sixteenth century Marian antiphons, Tallis Gaude Gloriosa and Mundy Vox Patris Caelestis alongside works by Howells, Leighton and Matthew Martin’s Adam Lay Ybounden, which Gabrieli first performed as the opening work on our Christmas disc, Incarnation.
