A once-in-a-lifetime chance to hear a performance of the outstandingly fine Missa Ave Maria, written by the man who almost certainly taught John Taverner when he was a chorister at Tattershall College. Only two works by Ashwell survive complete, but they are thrilling: this rich, florid mass setting for six voices comes close to matching the monumental splendour of Taverner's celebrated Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas.

Hedged around with motets in honour of the Virgin Mary by contemporaries and successors including Taverner, Tallis and Sheppard, this programme will be a Tudor treat for May, the traditional month of Mary.
