The Marian Consort

All Creation Waits

Palestrina Magnificat primi toni
Poulenc O magnum mysterium
L'Heritier Ave Maria
Treseder O Virgo splendens
Lusitano Inviolata, integra, et casta es, Maria
Britten A Hymn to the Virgin
Palestrina O magnum mysterium
MacMillan O Radiant Dawn
Josquin Ave Maria
Villette O magnum mysterium

Follow the thread of Advent mystery through this hour-long sequence for voices. Intricate renaissance works by Palestrina that once rang through the Sistine Chapel appear alongside the ecstatic serenity of contemporary motets by MacMillan and Treseder.

At the heart of the programme sit two songs devoted to Mary: a beautiful setting of the Inviolata, written by the Afro-Portuguese composer Vicente Lusitano in homage to his predecessor Josquin, and the 16-year-old Britten’s sublime miniature, A Hymn to the Virgin.
