Music from the Ritson Manuscript

Music from the Ritson Manuscript


The CLOTHWORKERS CONSORT OF LEEDS performs music from the Ritson Manuscript (London, British Library, Add. 5665). This manuscript contains a diverse collection of carols, masses, Latin liturgical and devotional texts, sacred chant, and secular and religious songs in English, representing a compendium of vocal music from the mid-15th to early 16th centuries. This programme will explore the diversity of the collection including two large-scale works by Thomas Pack (‘Lumen ad revelacionem gencium’ and an English Te Deum), a setting of the prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary against the plague, ‘Stella celi extirpavit’, the Marian antiphon ‘Salve regina’, and a range of carols and songs for small ensemble.

The Clothworkers Consort of Leeds [] (CCL) was formed in 2001 as a chamber choir which included the performance of sacred choral music in liturgical settings as one of its important aims. Since that time, it has developed into one of the finest choral ensembles in the north of England.

This event is presented as part of the 25th annual International Medieval Congress at the University of Leeds. Find out more about our public events [] and join us as we make Leeds medieval.
