Early Sacred Music

The BBC Singers perform a selection of Latin pre-reformation motets from the Eton Choirbook, by composers including Horwood and Lambe. Taverner's Western Wynde Mass is the centrepiece of this concert, a series of beautiful choral variations based on a secular tune. Wylkynson's ‘Salve Regina', a hymn to the Virgin Mary that fascinated European composers throughout the Renaissance era, closes this concert of early church music.
