Distant Mirrror: Nov. 15 - Music of Robert Fayrfax
Music of late 15th, early 16th century English composer Robert Fayrfax on Friday's (11/15) Distant Mirror. Fayrfax was the most prominent musician in the employ of Kings Hnery VII and Henry VIII, and his music influenced many who followed, such as Thomas Tallis and John Taverner. He was closely associated with St. Albans Abbey and wrote a mass specifically for it, the Missa Albanus, which you can hear performed by the Cardinall's Musick under the direction of Andrew Carwood. Join Allan Kelly at 10pm.
