Reflecting Byrd

The death of William Byrd in July 1623 at the age of 80 heralded the end of an era for English music. Before it, for more than a hundred years, came the a cappella style of the Renaissance, which Byrd portrayed so exquisitely. This programme brilliantly captures the genius of this extraordinary man and celebrates his long term friendship with Thomas Tallis who was his mentor, partner in publishing and god-father to his son.
