Join us for a visual and aural feast of music from Renaissance Antwerp combining Obrecht and Barbireau together in this celebration of these two prominent representatives of Franco-Flemish polyphony with connections to the Church of Our Lady in Antwerp around 1500 (today’s Antwerp Cathedral). Obrecht is a master innovator of the cantus firmus technique around he weaves the melodies of his celebratory Missa Sub tuum praesidium. Osculetur me, Barbireau’s only surviving motet, completes the programme.

These concerts are presented in association with the Alamire Foundation and AMUZ with support from the Flanders Government.

Please note there is a £1.50 administration fee per transaction
