Shepherds, what have you seen? A Flemish Christmas

Join us for an evening of seasonal 16th century music that centres on
the nativity scene, and upon the humble shepherds who were among the
first to see the baby Jesus. Our programme features works by Jacob
Clemens and his Franco-Flemish contemporaries. Clemens's music is
polyphonic perfection: unlike most northern European composers of the
time he never travelled to Italy; he revels in relatively conservative
close-worked counterpoint and sonorous chording. His Missa Pastores
quidnam vidistis moves seamlessly between moods of contemplative
reverence and joyful dancing. All is crowned by a rapturous Agnus Dei
in which the texture is enriched by an extra voice. The setting of the
Mass will be interspersed with seasonal motets by Gombert, Verdelot,
Josquin, Willaert and Clemens himself. Mulled wine and mince pies will
be available at the interval. Vrolijk kerstfeest!
