Although they had plenty of other things to worry about – wars, disease, death, heaven and hell – it could be said that human beings in Medieval and Renaissance Europe had a closer relationship than ours with nature and a better understanding of how to live harmoniously within the natural order.
This is a programme of songs and motets which have things to say to us about the environment when we listen from our current perspective of concern about climate change. The music is by Monteverdi, Crecquillon, Lassus, Clemens, Hildegard of Bingen, Byrd and includes part of Brumel's astonishing 12-part 'Earthquake Mass'.
