Distant Mirror: June 15 - Tournai Mass
On Friday's Distant Mirror hear the late 13th--early 14th century Tournai Mass, the very first complete mass, that is, the first mass in which the ordinary remained fixed, although the mass movements were composed by several anonymous scribes. The Trio Medaieval performs. There's also music of King Henry VIII of England, who, when not beheading wives or detroying monasteries, had time to write some happening tunes, such as the suite "Rose without a Thorn" written while wooing Anne Boleyn. The Philip Jones Brass Ensemble performs. Join Allan Kelly at 10pm.
