Distant Mirror: Dec. 28 - Fayrfax's Missa Albanus

Dec 28, 2018

Music of late 15th, early 16th century English composer Robert Fayrfax on this week's Distant Mirror.  Fayrfax was the most prominent musician in the employ of Kings Henry VII and Henry VIII, and his music influenced many who followed, such as John Taverner and Thomas Tallis.  He was closely associated with St. Alban's Abbey and wrote a mass specifically for it, the Missa Albanus, which you can hear performed by the Cardinall's Musick directed by Andrew Carwood.  Join Allan Kelly Friday night at 10.
