Gaudeamus! Music of Byrd, Josquin, and Turges

Peter Phillips and the legendary voices of The Tallis Scholars return to Boston this holiday season for their 39th concert with BEMF! Their sublime program features some of the most breathtaking and virtuosic vocal music of the late 15th and 16th centuries, from the festive exuberance of Josquin’s Missa Gaudeamus to a selection of miniature masterpieces by Byrd including his famous “Lullaby” and a trio of motets, and concludes with an astonishing Magnificat by Turges found in the Eton Choirbook. Join us in celebrating the season with this evening of soaring beauty and incomparable harmonies.
