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" miraculously survived the violence in four manuscript copies. Concerts featured this masterpiece, along with seasonal Sarum Chant, "Puer natus est nobis" by William Byrd, and "Quid petis O fili" by Richard Pygott.
Three concerts directed by Claude Lévy:
