Bryan, John (2007) Songs without Words: Consort Music from the Age of Elizabeth I. In: Lancaster International Concert Series, 29 November 2007, Great Hall, Lancaster University. (Submitted)

Renaissance composers were adept at borrowing each others’ music: well known songs were arranged as instrumental pieces; motets and madrigals performed without their texts. This programme explores a range of consort music that owes much to the rich vocal repertory of the Elizabethan age, including pieces by Tallis, Tye, Parsons, Ferrabosco, Byrd and Dowland.
