Choral music of Michael Haydn
Nowadays Michael Haydn is thought of as either the younger brother of Joseph Haydn or a friend of Mozart. However, in his own day and throughout the 19th Century he was revered as a major figure in Austro-German choral music. His numerous works were widely performed and exerted a strong influence on later generations of composers.

The Lamentations of Jeremiah
by Thomas Tallis
Rightly hailed as one of the high-points of Tudor music, Tallis’s Lamentations set texts for Maundy Thursday Matins. Following custom, he also sets the announcements, the Hebrew letters which separate the verses, and the refrain ‘Jerusalem, Jerusalem...’ in music that is at once unique and timeless.
