Gallicantus is a word from monastic antiquity for the office held just before the dawn. It evokes the renewal of life offered by the coming day. Epitaphe, the tradition for elaborate musical settings of the Mass for the Dead, was first established in France during the 14th Century.

Tonight’s programme includes music by Crecquillon, Josquin des Prez, Brumel and Gombert.

Tickets: £9
