Dunedin Consort: The Golden Age

About Dunedin Consort: The Golden Age

The Spanish Golden Age, which flourished during the late-sixteenth and early-seventeenth centuries, led to some of the most gloriously opulent choral music of the late Renaissance. Ben Parry, co-founder of Dunedin Consort, returns to direct this choral tour of music by Tomás Luis de Victoria and Francisco Guerrero, framed here both by the works of their Scottish contemporaries Robert Johnson and David Peebles, and by those of 21st-century composers Morten Lauridsen and James MacMillan, whose vocal writing resounds with the influences of these sixteenth-century polyphonic masters.

Director - Ben Parry

Programme including:
Tomás Luis de Victoria - Missa O Magnum Mysterium
David Peebles - Si quis diligit me
Robert Johnson - Ave Dei patris filia
James MacMillan - Strathclyde Motets (selections)
Morten Lauridsen - O Magnum Mysterium

Presented in association with St Andrews Fair Saturday 2018
