Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal - Byrd 400

Guest presenters

An anniversary always provides an excellent opportunity to program some music… and in this case, a perfect occasion to pay tribute to one of the greatest musicians England has ever known: William Byrd, who died 400 years ago, in 1623. Because Queen Elizabeth I—who instituted Anglicanism as the State religion—held him in such high regard, he was able to remain Catholic without concern, while being required to compose for both faiths. He worked in every genre, from masses and a cappella motets, both skilful and expressive, to compositions for consorts of viols and those entrusted to the organ and harpsichord, often of a rare elegance.
