Tudor Splendour

Missa gloria tibi Trinitas, by John Taverner (c. 1490-1545)

Edinburgh Mass (2001), by Gabriel Jackson (b. 1962)

Bella Voce, conducted by Andrew Lewis


Explore the resonance between two British masters of choral composition.  John Taverner crafted many masterpieces of the early 16th century, and his Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas has been called “one of the greatest compositions ever to have been written in England” by Peter Phillips of the Tallis Scholars.  Gabriel Jackson, born in Bermuda in 1962, is one of the world’s most celebrated living composers, recognized especially for his use of words and text. He has composed works for King’s College Cambridge, the Tallis Scholars, and Merton College Oxford, as well as commissions for the Choir of St. Luke’s (Evanston) and Bella Voce.  Come hear a musical conversation across the centuries in March.

Run time, including 15-minute intermission, is about 80 minutes
