The Golden Age: Tudor Treasures

  • Church of the Resurrection 105 Shenton Road 6010 Australia (map)

Step back in time with the Giovanni Consort this March, as they present a program of a cappella music from the Tudor period of 16th century England. 

The singers will perform in the old style, or stile antico, and perform the works of William Byrd and Thomas Tallis without a conductor. The performance will encourage the singers to collaborate organically with in the music and use the glorious nuances within the music to communicate and display their artistry. 

Both Thomas Tallis and William Byrd lived through the onset of reformation and the turning point for sacred music in the 16 century. Though both composers were unreformed Catholics, they could suit their compositional output to suit the demands of the monarchs whom they served. This concert will seek to examine and explore the both sides of their opus, their Latin music and also the new reformed Anglican repertoire. 


Thomas Tallis: Suscipe Quaeso Domine, O Sacrum Convivium, In Ieiunio Et Fletu, If Ye Love Me, O Lord Give the Holy Spirit. 

William Byrd: Laudibus in Sanctis, Ne Irascaris Domine, Ave Verum Corpus, Praise Our Lord All Ye Gentiles, Sing Joyfully.
