A Tudor Christmas with RenChorNY
Before his 1534 Break with Rome, and the 1536-9 dissolution and plundering of monasteries, Henry VIII employed the great Robert Fayrfax, whose florid festal Christmas Mass "Tecum Principium" was copied in four manuscripts, which miraculously survived the violence. RenChorNY returns to this masterpiece, along with seasonal Sarum Chant and works by Pygott and Byrd.
Claude Lévy directs RenChorNY, with John Hetland's new editions.
