Peter Phillips

2015 sees not only the 80th birthday of the distinguished Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, but also the 500th anniversary of the birth of the Tudor composer, John Sheppard. To link them in a concert programme may seem capricious, but in fact they are aesthetically quite closely linked, in mood if not exactly in style. In fact Pärt’s deeply contemplative language is beautifully reflected in a number of the surrounding renaissance works – Tallis’s Sancte deus, Mouton’s Nesciens mater and Allegri’s Miserere being excellent examples.
