Celebrating Heinrich Isaac (ca. 1450-1517)
Celebrate the season in high style with one of Early Music's truly essential ensembles, The Tallis Scholars with director Peter Phillips. These extraordinary singers return to BEMF for their 29th consecutive year in a sublime program showcasing masterworks by the influential and prolific Renaissance composer Heinrich Isaac, alongside music by his brilliant contemporary Josquin des Prez. Marvel at these peerless performances of Isaac's opulent motet, Optime divino, the transcendent beauty of Josquin's setting of the Stabat Mater, and much more, including works by fellow contemporaries Browne and Gombert.

Pre-Concert Talk at 7pm.

“Inspiring and deeply moving.”
—The Telegraph
