Music for the Feast

Some Feast-related fare on Australian Public Radio from this past weekend’s programming. Link here: For the God Who Sings.

Summary here:

Glorious harmony accompanies the Assumption or Dormition of The Blessed Virgin for the annual feast on August 15, chiefly under the musical direction of Thomas Tallis and Charpentier. An uninterrupted hour-long concert of Tallis’s Mass on the votive antiphon ‘Salve intemerata’ is interspersed with that, another votive antiphon and chant propers for the Feast from the Sarum Rite, sung by the Choir of Winchester Cathedral. The program begins with Sir John Tavener’s marvellous Hymn for the Dormition of the Mother of God and Stravinsky and Lemaire set the Latin motet for Assumption that Charpentier carries into his Missa Assumpta est Maria.

One of the many internet sites with music worth your listening ear.
