In an era when melancholy was glorified in popular culture, laments for nobility, historic figures, and even composers produced some of the most emotionally charged music of the time. This program focuses on works by Flemish composers working in the courts and churches of Venice, as well as two landmark lamentations by Monteverdi. Alongside the Venetian music are English works by Tallis, Byrd, and Tomkins composed under the Venetian influence. The critically acclaimed male voice ensemble Gallicantus performs this deeply affecting music.
