Zamora, Catedral de San Salvador
Flanders & Spain
El León de Oro
Peter Phillips director
This programme features writing from Flanders and Spain. The Flemish half is dominated by a magnificent double-choir mass by Lassus, written in the Venetian tradition; the Spanish half is frameworked with motets by Francisco Guerrero, famed for his music in praise of the Virgin. In between we hear how Arvo Pärt could hymn her; and the young English composer, Matthew Martin, rewrites Guerrero’s Ave virgo sanctissima to give it a new perspective. Second and final night in Zamora.
