Info for Music for Milan Cathedral



In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, Milan Cathedral acted as a magnet to many of the finest composers of the time. Yet the Cathedral's maestro di cappella for almost thirty years, Hermann Matthias Werrecore, is almost completely unknown to us today.

Why was he forgotten? Did his Flemish origins mean he was never properly adopted by his Milanese congregation? Did his later reputation suffer from confusion with his countryman Matthias Le Maistre?

Six of Werrecore's surviving motets are presented here the first time any of his sacred music has been recorded. They are heard alongside works by composers Werrecore knew, drawn mostly from the holdings of the Milan library during his tenure there. Siglo de Oro's act of rediscovery reveals the exceptional quality of the music, and Patrick Allies directs them in performances of extraordinary flair.

Siglo De OroPatrick Allies, direction



Patrick Allies
began his musical education as a chorister at the Temple Church in London, under Stephen Layton. He sang in Gloucester Cathedral Choir before taking up a Choral Scholarship to study Music at King’s College London, graduating in 2010 with First Class Honours. Patrick went on to postgraduate study at the University of Cambridge where he sang in Jesus College Choir.

While at university, Patrick founded Siglo de Oro, which has since become a professional ensemble, performing both renaissance and contemporary music. In 2016 Patrick and Siglo de Oro released their first CD with Delphian Records, featuring the world premiere recordings of eight newly-commissioned Advent Antiphons, in collaboration with saxophonist Sam Corkin. BBC Radio 3 Record Review called it 'an impressive and adventurous debut from the ensemble’.

Patrick also holds positions as Musical Director of Wokingham Choral Society, Lecturer at Morley College, Conductor of Khoros, Director of Music at All Saints’ Putney, and Director of West Sussex Youth Choir. In 2017 Patrick was shortlisted for both the Nordic Choral Conducting Competition and the 3rd Juozas Naujalis International Competition for Choral Conductors.
