Cappella Pratensis, 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. 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.


Ph. Verdelot: Nil majus superi vident | J. Mouton: Tua est potentia, Nesciens mater, Kyrie (+orgelimprovisatie), Credo & Agnus dei uit Missa Tua est potentia | R. Fayrfax: Gloria & Sanctus uit Missa O bone Iesu | W. Lambe: Nesciens mater | A. de Longueval: Benedicat nos imperialis maiestas
