Fretwork “the finest viol consort on the planet” (London Evening Standard), will demonstrate the treasure trove of In Nomine settings stemming from John Tavener's 16th-century setting of the Benedictus. Over the last 150 years English composers were insired to compose variants in their own style, including two by living composers, Nico Muhly and Gavin Bryars.
