Marking the 400th anniversary of the death of William Byrd, an exploration of the influences, colleagues and pervading Catholic faith of one of the greatest composers of the Renaissance. As well as music by the Flemish composer Philippe De Monte – who entered into a fascinating compositional correspondence with Byrd – we explore here the sombre textures of works by Clemens non Papa that inspired Byrd’s setting of Tristitia et anxietas, and take Byrd’s legacy firmly into the modern day with two new works by Dobrinka Tabakova.
