16th and 17th June 2023
We are really looking forward to celebrating the great composer, William Byrd, in a weekend of #ByrdSongFest concerts in June! Join us with our friends Chelys and Ex Corde Vocal Ensemble on 16th and 17th June, journeying through Ye Sacred Muses to Choral Masterpieces, marking the 400th anniversary since Byrd's death.
Byrd’s magnificent 10-part Great Service stands at the pinnacle of English Renaissance choral writing. The Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis are heard alongside his other English music from the court of Elizabeth I and James I, and his sumptuous 5-part Mass, reflecting how, during the 1590s at the height of a national fear of Catholics, Byrd could write music for his Catholic friends without fear while producing some of his finest English music.
