The centrepiece of 'Something borrowed' is John Taverner’s lively mass setting based on the popular renaissance song ‘The Western Wynde’. Taking their cue from that, the other pieces in the programme are also based on the work of other composers. Josquin's gorgeous motet based on the plainsong ‘Ave Maria --- virgo serena’. The song ‘Fortuna desperata’, attributed to Busnois, in arrangements by Agricola and Senfl. Two versions of Heinrich Isaac’s sublime ‘Innsbruck’. Josquin’s famous ‘Mille regrets’ and pieces based upon it by Navaez and Gombert. And a glorious Magnificat by Clemens using the tunes of no less than six popular songs of the day.

Nova is Bristol's special early music vocal ensemble, committed to bringing the treasures of renaissance polyphony to live audiences.
