n November 2024, ReRenaissance presents a concert dedicated to the work of Guillaume Du Fay, who died 550 years ago, on 27 November 1474.

He had an unusually long life and a career that spanned most of Western Europe. He was a great influence on other musicians and his works continued to be disseminated and imitated long after his death.

Du Fay is best known for his monumental isorhythmic motets, but he also wrote astonishingly simple secular songs and everything in between. This programme demonstrates the breadth and depth of his talent across the full range of his works, concluding with his motet ‘Ave regina celorum’, which he sang on his deathbed.
