Got tickets for The Earth Resounds, A Tribute to Johannes Ciconia or The Cardinall’s Musick (or all three!) but can’t wait until the concert? We’ve put together a playlist featuring finger-tingling performances by some of our Baroque and Renaissance festival favourites including works by Josquin des Prez, Handel, Orlande de Lassus and Tomas Luis de Victoria.

The playlist finishes off with John Dowland’s haunting 16th century instrumental Lachrimae and ayre Flow My Tears, the inspiration behind our contemporary Associate Artist Scanner’s programme of events demonstrating the interplay between new and early music throughout the season.
