In the Mode: June 29, 2014

Next time on In the Mode we will again go to Tudor England with music from a Royal Songbook and songs by Henry VIII. The luxuriously illustrated Royal Songbook was given to Henry and his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, in 1518 possibly by Petrus Alamire, and the group we will hear sing was named after him, according to Tudor music specialist, David Skinner, who conducts.  

 CD title: Henry’s Music, Motets from a Royal Choirbook, Songs by Henry Performer: AlamireCD label: OBSIDIAN  705
