‘Our Lady, Star of the Sea’ and ‘The Mystic Rose’, were ancient names for the Virgin Mary who was central to worship in the Renaissance period. This programme explores some of the most glorious music written in her honour, spanning three centuries and four countries. The selection includes a setting of each of the four great Marian antiphons, seasonal hymns sung in praise of the Holy Mother throughout the church year, beautiful miniatures such as Morales’ Ave Maria, and William Cornysh’s glorious extended hymn of praise Salve Regina.
