support act 19:45 – Doulce Memoire
Peter Phillips, founder and conductor of the renowned Tallis Scholars, returns to the Nederlands Kamerkoor for a programme compiled from the works of two great British composers: John Taverner (c.1490-1545) and John Tavener (1944-2013). Peter Phillips’ irresistible interpretations stimulate the singers to reach great heights, which is part of the reason why the Nederlands Kamerkoor was pleased to invite him once more for a tour of the Netherlands.
Central to this programme is Taverner’s Missa Corona Spinea, one of the highlights of English sacred music, interspersed with well-known and lesser-known motets by John Tavener. Taverner’s multi-voiced Tudor music and enchanting polyphony are interspersed with the iconic sounds of Tavener’s a-cappellaworks in a homage to two of the greatest English composers from the past and present.
