From 1500 to 1535, a remarkable series of musical manuscripts were produced in the workshop of Petrus Alamire, calligrapher, musician, composer and spy. These comprise a treasure trove of music by the great mid-Renaissance composers. Many of these musicians were immortalized in a celebratory motet by one of their number, Pierre Moulu, whose brilliant ‘Mater floreat’ names and praises 18 composers whose works were issued by Alamire. In our concert, we’ll perform Moulu’s motet as well as many brilliant works by the named composers, including a pastiche mass setting; and we’ll feature some of the spectacular images and illuminations from the Alamire collection.
