Gallicantus: Beyond the Natural Order

Live from the Temple Church, London, vocal ensemble Gallicantus performs 16th-century masses: Tallis's Missa Puer natus est nobis and Rore's Missa Praeter rerum seriem.

Temple Winter Festival: Gallicantus - Beyond the Natural Order

Sarah Mohr-Pietsch presents this concert live from the Temple Church in London, featuring two of the grandest masses of the sixteenth century. Both masses were composed upon a Christmas theme: the 'Missa Puer natus est nobis' of Thomas Tallis, was probably written for a grand celebration of the visit of Phillip II of Spain to England in the 1550s. Cipriano de Rore's 'Missa Praeter rerum seriem', is based on a famous Christmas motet by Josquin des Prez. They are performed by one of Britain's leading vocal ensembles.
