William Byrd: Loyal Subject & Subversive
Saturday Oct 13, 2018 - 7:30 PM
The music of one the Tudor Era’s greatest composers is featured along with music of his contemporaries in an examination of the difficult balancing act lead by William Byrd as he juggled his fervent Catholic beliefs with his loyalty to the Crown. Being one of Elizabeth I’s favourites allowed him some latitude, but he still had to tread carefully in a world where he could not speak openly about his personal faith. Featured works include the Mass for Four Voices and the Great Service.
