Event details

Monteverdi’s extraordinary Missa In Illo Tempore (Mass in that Time) is based on the motet by the Flemish composer Nicolas Gombert. Published alongside his Vespers of 1610, it is less often performed, but no less indicative of the incredible flowering of music activity in and around late Renaissance Venice.

Join Yorkshire Bach Choir for a programme which will also feature rarely heard motets and psalms by Giovanni Croce and Teodoro Clinio (specially edited for this concert), showcasing mastery of the Cori Spezzati style favoured by Venetian composers of the age.
