At the heart of Christian worship is the Sacrament of the Eucharist. C16 composers wrote music of superlative quality to honour this sacrament. We will sing a selection of this music- including Motets by Tallis, Guerrero, Willaert, Byrd, Gabrieli and Josquin.
Where else would you have the opportunity to sing such a wonderful selection of music in one day!
