Taverner – Missa Gloria tibi trinitas: Contrapunctus, Choir of The Queen’s College, Owen Rees

5 March @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm

£5 – £20

Owen Rees leads early-music consort Contrapunctus alongside The Choir of The Queen’s College, Oxford in a performance of John Taverner’s masterwork, the Missa Gloria tibi trinitas, as well as a variety of the composer’s motets.

The groups’ recording of this repertoire received a Diapason d’or in January 2020, and the accompanying review comments: ‘The alternation of top-flight soloists and a perfect choir here produces marvels … A triumph of the English choral tradition at its best.’

Come and experience the dramatic contrasts in Taverner’s virtuosic writing: intimate passages for solo voices set against full-bodied calls to rejoice from all forty singers. The virtuosic Missa Gloria tibi trinitas has pride of place in the Forrest-Heyther partbooks (in the Bodleian Library, Oxford), and might well have been heard on Trinity Sunday in the chapel of Cardinal Wolsey’s palace at Hampton Court.
