Since the fourth century, the service of Compline has marked the end of the day, ushering in the darkness of the night. Much of the music here is inspired by this ancient service. The first half of the album features a selection of atmospheric works that relate to the transition between light and darkness. Then there is a turning point; the light returns, birds sing, and flowers bloom once more.
We are very much looking forward to launching our debut album, English Motets, with a concert in London on Saturday 7 April 2018 at 3pm. Our venue is St Peter’s Eaton Square, a remarkable building with a great acoustic for renaissance polyphony and a fabulous Portico for post-concert refreshments. Tickets are available to purchase in advance here.We hope you can join us to celebrate the release of our first CD!
