Ye Sacred Muses – September 2016

Click for full program PDF

Clerestory begins its eleventh season with Ye Sacred Muses: Choral Music from the Chapel Royal. The Chapel Royal was for centuries the seat of British sacred music-making, and the ensemble will perform lesser-known a cappella works by Henry Purcell, William Byrd, Thomas Tallis, and others. We will also highlight the madrigal compilation, The Triumphs of Oriana — a tribute to Queen Elizabeth I — and its 20th-century companion, A Garland for the Queen, which commemorates the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II with contributions by Vaughan Williams, Finzi, Tippett and others. Clerestory is eager to return to the cathedral roots and illuminated harmonies that inspired its name!
