This concert consisted of music by two of Spain’s most accomplished choral composers from the 16th century.

The central work in this programme was the magnificent six part Mille Regretz mass by Cristobal de Morales, based on a well-known chanson by Josquin. Two works by Alonso Lobo were: Versa est in luctum, an exquisitely expressive lament written to mark the death of Philip II of Spain, and Lamentations of Jeremiah. Lobo's work, composed towards the end of the 16th century, is full of rich and daring harmonies - a real treat for early music fans.
