Live from London – The Gesualdo Six
Saturday 29 August at 7pm BST / 2pm EST
Since the fourth century, the service of Compline has marked the end of the day, ushering in the darkness of the night. Much of our programme is inspired by this ancient service, evoking a contemplative atmosphere. Renaissance polyphony by Tallis, Byrd and Gesualdo that contains startling harmonic shifts and expressive word painting is juxtaposed with contemporary reflections by Arvo Pärt, Joanna Marsh and Veljo Tormis.
