Our next concerts take us back to the 15th and 16th centuries, when successive generations of composers born in the villages and towns of northern France and the Low Countries exerted huge influence on the development of music all over western Europe. Our programme will begin with a motet composed by Guillaume Dufay for the consecration of Florence Cathedral in 1436, and continue with works by Ockeghem and Josquin, Mouton's beautiful Nesciens mater, the motet Ego sum qui sum by Gombert, and finally the stunning Mass of the same name by Philippe Rogier (1561-1596).
