Distant Mirror: Sept. 1 - The Earliest English Music
Legendary countertenor Russell Oberlin performs the 12th century St. Godric Songs, the earliest English sacred music that we know of. He is accompanied on viol by Seymour Barab. And there are 14th century English sacred and secular pieces performed by the Hilliard Ensemble. That's followed by what may be the most famous choral work of the 16th century, Spem in Alium of Thomas Tallis performed, of course, by the Tallis Scholars. Join Allan Kelly Friday Night at 10.
