Triumphs: Renaissance Conquests in Love and War

Music by Striggio, Nicolson, Gabrieli, Croce, Gastoldi, Palestrina, Janequin, Josquin, Lassus, Morley, Weelkes

Love and War: two favourite Renaissance themes feature in this programme of music from England, Italy and France. The inspiration for the first half is the 1592 collection of madrigals Il trionfi di Dori; the second half starts and finishes with two of the great chansons by Clément Janequin – his depiction of street life in Paris (Les Cris de Paris) and his musical rendition of the 1515 Battle of Marignano (La Guerre).
