James Maunders: Yaldo
Victoria: Missa O magnum Mysterium
We present the first performance of a work by local composer and musician James Maunders. Yaldo ('The Nativity') is a cantata whose musical material draws on Hebraic and Syriac modes and dance meters from around the Eastern Mediterranean.
This short advent concert also features one of the greatest works by Tomás Luis de Victoria, the most famous composer of renaissance Spain.
