WORLD PREMIERE PROGRAM
Medieval Byzantine Chant and Imperial Acclamations c. 1400
Medieval English Chant and Polyphony for the Sarum Rite

At Christmastide 1400, King Henry IV of England received at his court Byzantine (Eastern Roman) Emperor Manuel II, who was on a quest through Europe seeking aid against the Ottomans.Manuel enjoyed lavish entertainment from his English hosts, who were in awe at his devotion to daily services chanted in Greek during his visit. We celebrate this historic East-West encounter at London’s Eltham Palace—between the singers of the two royal chapels—with a newly researched program in Greek and Latin for Christmas and Epiphany.
