Contrapunctus: A Song for all Seasons

Tickets £5 - £25, can be bought via the Ticket Tailor website.

William Byrd's vast output of Latin polyphony provided religious solace to his fellow Catholics in Protestant England and furnished their services with fine music at key moments in the church’s year. In this concert, marking the 400th anniversary of Byrd’s death, Contrapunctus explores the astonishing breadth of Byrd’s sacred output, including works for the great feasts of All Saints and Easter. Byrd's publication of this output for all seasons is even more remarkable given that he wrote much of it knowing that its performance in religious services was illegal.
