With David Allinson


7.30pm - 9pm

In this live session, David will look at two wonderful motets of longing — Vigilate by Elizabethan composer William Byrd, whose text speaks powerfully of watching and waiting at a time of great turbulence, and Sitivit anima mea by Portuguese composer Manuel Cardoso, which conjures with images of longed-for peace, of flying like a dove and finding rest. Cardoso’s style is smooth and consoling; Byrd’s is energetically, restlessly rhetorical.
