The Suffolk Coast

Aldeburgh Voices

Vaughan Williams, Poulenc and Martin.

Blythburgh’s simple, lofty grandeur is the perfect setting for some of the most beautiful sacred music from the early twentieth century in a programme where the spirit of ancient plainchant and polyphony seems embellished and re-imagined.


In Vaughan Williams’ mass for two choirs, the intricate interlocking voice parts and modal harmonies of English Tudor music is channelled into a work of serenity and grace, whilst Frank Martin’s mass, largely completed in the same year, uses the spatial separation and richly layered textures of his voices to ravishing effect.
