Orlande de Lassus, Europe’s most famous musician during his lifetime, created nothing finer than the Lagrime di San Pietro, a collection of twenty spiritual madrigals and one motet for seven voices.


A cycle of sacred madrigals on the sorrows of St Peter following his denial of Christ, it was assembled shortly before the composer’s death. Lassus pours every dramatic nuance and piece of harmonic invention he could possibly muster, hurling the listener through the stages of Peter’s rage, remorse and resignation, and concluding with a motet that presents Christ’s response to the world.


The Giovanni Consort is delighted and privileged to present this work in the architectural and acoustic splendour of Guildford Grammar School. Please join us for what will be a special and intimate performance of one of the great renaissance masterpieces.
