Gloriously uplifting early choral music by Josquin des Prez, Palestrina and Byrd

Josquin des Prez was the musical superstar of continental Europe in the 15th and early 16th centuries. His transformation of simple melodies into soaring choral textures, gorgeously rich harmonies, and brain-tickling multiplicity of independent voices inspired generations of composers across western Europe, and his music remains hugely popular today. The singers of The Tallis Scholars mark the 500th anniversary of his death with a programme of his music interspersed with pieces by the leading lights of the next generation in Italy and England – Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina and William Byrd.

Update, 20 July: Additional tickets going on sale:

Following the government’s recent announcement, we are slightly increasing the capacity of August events in Snape Maltings Concert Hall, but not yet to full capacity. We will put an extra allocation of tickets on sale, but will make sure that you, or your party, have an empty seat on either side. We cannot guarantee that seats behind and in front of you will be empty.

These additional tickets for our indoor events will go on sale to Priority Bookers on Wednesday 21 July at 10am, and for General Booking on Friday 23 July at 10am.
