The season of Lent has always elicited heartfelt, emotive music from composers. Our programme of penitential masterpieces is built around Josquin’s hypnotic Miserere mei Deus, almost certainly written for Holy Week devotions at the Court of Ferrara in 1504. Equally emotive are Lheritier’s warmly humane setting of Miserere mei, Domine, Gombert’s plangent Media vita and Lassus’s engrossing, rhetorical setting of Infelix ego. With other motets by Gombert, Tye, Tallis and Rore, this is a rich and varied programme of superb Lenten music, some of which may be new even to seasoned early music aficionados.
