Byrd Ensemble – Big Byrd
Markdavin Obenza, Artistic Director
Concert broadcast – online only
October 9th at 7:00pm – one broadcast only


A special program, filmed in St. James Cathedral, featuring the namesake of Byrd Ensemble: English Renaissance composer William Byrd. As a devout Catholic, Byrd had the challenge of composing for the Protestant church. We can hear his longing for the return of Catholicism in his writing, and perhaps it was this inner conflict that allowed him to produce some of the most beautiful compositions of Renaissance vocal music ever written.
