The Choral Pilgrimage 2018: Britten and Cornysh
Sat, 14 April 2018
Cornysh My love she mourneth
Britten Hymn to Saint Cecilia
Cornysh Salve Regina
Britten Advance Democracy
Cornysh Ave Maria, Mater Dei
Cornysh Woefully array’d
Cornysh Ah Robin, gentle Robin
Britten Sacred and Profane
Cornysh was a court musician who excelled at writing complex and adventurous antiphons for the church, as well as beautiful secular songs for the courts of King Henry VII and Henry VIII. Britten is celebrated for his ability to expertly mix sacred and secular in order to showcase the voice in all its multifaceted glory. A perfect example of this is his Sacred and Profane, where he gives us a fascinating mixture of the devotional and the rumbustiously secular. The final song ‘A death’ is a wicked blend of horror and gallows humour far removed from the melancholic canon Ah Robin, gentle Robin by Cornysh.
