Although King Henry VIII captures our collective imagination for many sinister reasons, his reign and numerous reforms undeniably contributed to the rise of English Renaissance polyphony. Music occupied a central place in his life: he composed, sang and excelled on several musical instruments – including the recorder. In fact, there are nearly 75 examples in his personal collection! For this concert, Flûte Alors! delves into the manuscripts, influences and heritage of Henry VIII. The works of Henry VIII, William Cornysh and Thomas Tallis promise a royal evening!
