The Gesualdo Six present a luminous sequence of some of the finest vocal consort works from renaissance and contemporary composers. Taking inspiration from the darkness and shadows of Holy Week’s Tenebrae services, the programme explores atmospheric liturgical music through different lenses. Works from the Golden Age of polyphony by Tallis, Gesualdo and Victoria are juxtaposed with contemporary music by Judith Bingham and a new commission from Joanna Ward.
