Platinum Consort (dir. Scott Inglis-Kidger) presents The Lonely City – Renaissance Choral Music for Lent

Victoria – Lamentations for Holy Saturday
Browne – Stabat Mater
Taverner – Dum transisset Sabbatum
Tallis – In jejunio et fletu
Clemens non Papa – Fremuit spiritus Jesus
Josquin – Stabat Mater
Josquin (attrib.) – Absalon fili mi
Lassus – Tristis est anima mea
Lassus – In monte Oliveti
Cardoso – Et egressus est

Platinum Consort, directed by Scott Inglis-Kidger, explores the many varied expressions of the darkness of Passiontide with this programme of Renaissance choral music. This liturgical period has evoked some of the most highly-charged music ever written. Victoria’s stripped back, almost desolate, Lamentations for Holy Saturday are juxtaposed with the overtly rich textures of Browne’s Stabat Mater and Taverner’s Dum transisset Sabbatum.
