Alleluia, Virga Jesse


An invitation to attend BMEMF’s first in-person workshop since the pandemic began.

Celebrating this occasion is an opportunity to sing in a large and historic church which has a unique collection of European stained glass, including the famous Jesse window.

In honour of the window, which portrays the genealogy of Christ, David Allinson will choose motets for the Feast of the Annunciation, whose texts emphasise Mary’s connection to the Rod of Jesse as the mother of Jesus; and settings of the Ave Maria Caelorum (with its explicit epithet for Mary as Radix).

Depending upon the mix of singers, David hopes to include works by Byrd, Barra, Lassus and Willaert.

Advance booking is essential, via http://www.bmemf.org.uk
