Notes

Antiphonary is inspired by Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire, the oldest building in the country still lived in by the same family who built it over 900 years ago; the title refers to the Berkeley family antiphonary, a large and beautifully illuminated book of liturgical texts and chants dating back to around 1457. The music traces an historical timeline of the castle’s history and also incorporates excerpts from Vivaldi arias (thought to be the only known copies) from his opera La Costanza Degli-amori e de gl’odii (The triumphant constancy of love and hate), found in the castle muniments in 2002.

Antiphonary is also available for brass band, symphonic brass and wind dectet.
