Our first program invites the artists and audience alike to REFLECT on the myriad ways music   helps us to contemplate the lives and souls of others. Medieval and Renaissance requiem mass   movements are coupled with elegies to their composers. The performance begins with intimate and   intricate early polyphony (Machaut, Ockeghem, and Josquin), then blossoms into the familiar strains   of the English renaissance (Tallis and Byrd), and gradually unfolds to the grandeur of the double   chorus sonorities of the later English composers, C.H.H. Parry and William Harris.
