Programme to include Lassus Prophetiae Sibyllarum and contemporary responses by Dan Trueman and Dmitri Tymoczko.

Literally meaning “rooster song” or “cock crow”, Gallicantus takes its name from monastic antiquity; the name of the office held just before dawn, it was a ceremony which evoked the renewal of life offered by the coming day. Dedicated to renaissance music and directed by Gabriel Crouch, the membership of this early music group boasts a wealth of experience in consort singing and is bound by a shared love of communicating text.

In this late-night performance, the ensemble explores Lassus’ colourfully chromatic Prophetiae Sibyllarum, setting the storied Renaissance masterwork against contemporary responses in the unique acoustic of The Round Church, Cambridge’s oldest building.
