Baroque&Before celebrates its tenth anniversary in 2024. Tonight, the Geneva-based early music ensemble Gli Angeli Genève, founded in 2005 by Stephen MacLeod, brings us a program of Thomas Tallis’s sacred anthems and motets with selections from his setting of the Lamentatons of Jeremiah. Tonight’s program was recorded live in concert October 19, 2023, in Geneva, Switzerland’s Church of St. Gervais. Thanks to WFMT’s association with the European Broadcasting Union, we’re able to bring you tonight’s program as a stream for thirty days following the broadcast. A blue “Listen” button will appear when the link is accessible.


Thomas Tallis (ca 1505-1585)
In manus tuas Domine
O sacrum convivium
Lamentatio Jeremiae prophetae I
In pace
Gaude Gloriosa dei mater
Miserere nostri
Sancte Deus
Lamentatio Jeremiae prophetae II
Absterge Domine
Loquebantur variis linguis
O nata lux

William Byrd (1543-1623)
Ye sacred muses

Thomas Tallis
If ye love me
