This programme charts a course from twilight to sunrise, echoing both the rhythms of church liturgy and the mediaeval experience of night, seductive and unsettling in equal measure. Taverner’s mighty Ave Dei Patris Filia, based on a chant for Matins, stands at the end of a delicious sequence of sacred music, chansons and madrigals by both English and Continental composers.
