ZEPHYRUS PRESENTS
The Early Renaissance In England and France

Sunday, February 24, 2008
3:30 p.m.
St. Paul's Memorial Church
1700 University Avenue
Charlottesville, Virginia

This concert of sacred music from the late fifteenth century will highlight music from the continent by Johannes Ockeghem, Jacob Obrecht, Antoine Busnoys, and Alexander Agricola. Music from England will include the large-scale Stabat mater of John Browne and works by Walter Lambe and William Cornysh. This beautiful music is seldom performed and has found itself unfairly overshadowed by that of the next generation (Josquin des Prez and his contemporaries), but that really deserves to be heard. The concert program will bring out the differences between music from England and music from the continent in the early decades of the Renaissance.

Program
Regina celi Antoine Busnoys
Ave maris stella Jacob Obrecht
Magnificat Alexander Agricola
Intemerata Dei mater   Johannes Ockeghem
Gaude virgo William Cornysh

Tickets are $15 ($10 for students and seniors), available in advance from the New Dominion Bookstore downtown, Greenberry’s Barracks Road, and Mincer’s at the Corner, and at the door.
