Join us at Hereford Cathedral on 3rd August 2018 at 11:00am as part of the Three-Choirs Festival for a programme with a very special Hereford connection: Cornago’s mass, Missa Ayo visto lo mappamundi and the tune on which it is based, are the only musical works of the later Middle Ages to reference the idea of the ‘world map’ or mappa mundi, the renowned medieval cartographic representation of the globe. This programme is topical in other ways, too, featuring plainsongs from Hereford sources and embracing the Hereford saints Ethelbert and Thomas Cantilupe (in the form of John Benet’s motet ‘Lux fulget ex Anglia’), and the Lady Chapel musical tradition begun anew in the 14th  century through a bequest by Johanna de Bohun, under the watchful liturgical and musical eye of Thomas de Charlton, the then bishop.
