Simonsbath Festival: Somerset

St. Luke's Church, Simonsbath Somerset

The Corvus Consort presents an improvisatory exploration of Renaissance soundworlds in collaboration with Music on the Edge.

At the centre of the programme sits a selection of vocal music by some of Renaissance Europe’s most masterful composers, which will be extended and embellished by the saxophone and flute of Chris Caldwell and Susie Hodder-Williams of Music on the Edge. The harmonic language of the Renaissance lends itself effortlessly to a treatment of improvisation and experimentation that casts this music in a fresh and emotionally-heightened light.

In addition, medieval plainchant will feature as a starting point for both voices and instruments as part of improvisatory episodes that will begin and end the concert. The programme will also incorporate Renaissance choral works performed by the Corvus Consort alone.

Plainchant Ave maris stella
Victoria Ave maris stella
Byrd Ave verum corpus
Lassus Prophetiae Sibyllarum (selection)
Morales O magnum mysterium
Melgás Salve Regina
Victoria O vos omnes

Palestrina Sicut cervus
Byrd Kyrie, from Mass for Three Voices
Byrd Agnus Dei, from Mass for Three Voices
