‘Marian Music for the Milan Duomo’
works by Gaspar van Weerbeke, Matthias Werrecore
Franchinus Gaffurius & Josquin des Prez
Tonight’s programme is centred around Matthias Werrecore, a 16th-century Flemish composer who was maestro di cappella at Milan Cathedral from 1522-50.
Remarkably, only one of his works, La Bataglia Taliana, has received occasional performances in modern times. This concert sets about restoring Werrecore’s reputation to the status it deserves, by placing the finest of his Marian motets alongside those of his predecessors at Milan Cathedral.
