This highly topical programme, offered either as a full evening concert or a concise lunchtime- or afternoon-length recital of 65’ duration, presents a feast of music in honour of this great English saint. The Binchois Consort weaves together the story of Thomas’s life and legacy via motets, Mass movements, chant, and parts of the brilliant but little-known Mass cycle Thomas cesus. The programme can be complemented by a visual presentation showing images and scenes from the life of St Thomas.
