This fascinating programme lays out a treasure trove of 'In nomine' settings, all stemming from Taverner’s 16th century setting of the Benedictus (which includes the phrase 'in nomine Domini' (in the name of the Lord) from a Mass built on the plainchant 'Gloria tibi Trinitas'. In nomines form a rich repertory of late renaissance/early baroque English instrumental music. So attractive was this music that it inspired 150 years of English composers to compose variants in their own style, including two by living composers, Nico Muhly and Gavin Bryars.

Few other ensembles can match the range of Fretwork’s repertoire, spanning as it does the first printed music of 1501 in Venice, to music commissioned by the group.
