Organ Vespers for Eastertide

¶  Monday 4 May
     St Austin Catholic Parish

T his service will feature rare and beautiful survivals from early seventeenth-century France – hymn- and Magnificat-versets by masterful and sensitive polyphonist Jehan Titelouze, and the unique Fantaisie on the ‘Regina caeli’ by Charles Racquet, organist of Notre-Dame de Paris – interspersed with the chants assigned for the occasion, as was the practice when this music was written. We look forward to presenting this magisterial music in its native liturgical context.
