The church music half of the evening’s performance will have anthems and motets by Byrd, Tallis, Weelkes, Purcell, Palestrina, Guerrero, Monteverdi, Victoria, Lobo and Bach. The secular music will include English Ayres and Madrigals by Dowland, Morley and Gibbons, Italian madrigals by Monteverdi, A. Gabrieli and Gesualdo and French chansons by Lejeune and Arcadelt. Extracts from Handel’s masque Acis and Galatea will conclude the evening.
