Bella Voce
Andrew Lewis, Artistic Director

John Taverner crafted many masterpieces of the early 16th century, and his Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas has been called “one of the greatest compositions ever to have been written in England” by Peter Phillips of the Tallis Scholars.

Edinburgh Mass is a major work by one of Britain's leading choral composers was commissioned by St Mary's Cathedral, Edinburgh. The setting is terse and direct with the textures often pared-down. By turns fiery and exuberant, and inward and numinous, the music includes a huge variety of textures and techniques, including flowing melismas, luminous key changes, and pure homophony.
