In the 500th anniversary year of his death, we present Josquin’s most celebrated Mass, interspersed with the extraordinarily colourful madrigalian settings by Lassus.

The first in our 2022 Underground series and sung one-to-a-part by a quartet of singers, Rumours of Glory takes us back both to the glories of the European Renaissance and another two millennia further to the ancient Sibyls of Greece and Rome and the Middle East, believed to be harbingers of the Judaeo-Christian story with their mystical pronouncements on “the secrets of salvation”.

Rumours of Glory begins and ends with contemporary Australian music by Romano Crivici and Heather Percy, whose model is Anton Bruckner’s famous motet – stemming from a 19th-century resurgence of interest in the polyphonic style – Locus iste.

The Song Company is proudly presenting its whole 2022 Melbourne season at Abbotsford Convent. For all tour dates and info about the programs performed, please visit https://the.song.company/melbourne
