Alonso Lobo: Versa est in luctum

Victoria isn't the only Spanish Renaissance composer represented on The Tallis Scholars' tour program. Alonso Lobo, a composer of the later Renaissance whom Victoria himself considered to be his 'equal', composed the motet Versa est in luctum in 1598, and will be performed when The Tallis Scholars visit Calgary on Tuesday 24 April at the Bella Concert Hall.

Mouton: Quis dabit oculis nostris

If you joined us for our most recent A Luminous New Year's Eve concert, the name Jean Mouton should remind you of his reputation as one of the foremost Renaissance composers from France. His Quis Dabit Oculis Nostris, a lament for the wife of King Louis XII of France, is a masterwork the Tallis Scholars will perform on its tour program.
