Medieval Gloucester through music

Llanthony Secunda Priory, Priory Junction, Gloucester

2.30pm

The Glevum Consort look back to Llanthony Secunda Priory's 13th-century heyday, when texts such as the Old English Edi Beo Thu, now commonly known as the Llanthony Carol, were housed within its walls. The concert traces the history of medieval Gloucester through music, arriving at Byrd's Mass for Four Voices, which in this intimate setting will recall their original early performances in secret Catholic Masses during Elizabeth I's reign.
