Cappella Pratensis, Ensemble Alamire & Oltremontano Antwerpen

Legendary meeting between France and England

Three ensembles reconstruct the music of the Field of the Cloth of Gold in Balinghem in northern France. In June 1520, it was the site of the summit held between King Francis I of France and Henry VIII of England, with the intention of strengthening the bond of friendship between the two countries. Ensemble Alamire, Cappella Pratensis and Oltremontano Antwerpen present a brilliant interweaving of the two cultures, performing music by composers including Jean Mouton, Robert Fayrfax and Philippe Verdelot.
