The Marian Consort The Shepherds' Story: Renaissance music for Christmas

Rory McCleery – director

This programme follows the path of the Christmas story through the eyes of the key players in the drama of the Nativity, the Shepherds, in some of the most exquisite music of the 15th and 16th centuries. This music also affords us an opportunity to unravel some of the threads of compositional influence traced over nearly a century in the works of three generations of French, Spanish and Italian master composers including Cristóbal de Morales and Tomás Luis de Victoria.

"...the performances are models of discretion and musical taste, every texture clear, every phrase beautifully shaped" – The Guardian
