William Byrd was one of the greatest composers of the late Renaissance, and he enjoyed widespread esteem despite being a staunch Catholic in a militantly Protestant country. Our program will explore Byrd's extraordinary music in a wide variety of genres—Anglican canticles and anthems, Latin motets, English madrigals—while also reflecting on the tensions and contradictions of his public and personal life in Elizabethan England.

Program
Sing joyfully
Unto the hills mine eyes I lift (Paraphrase of Psalm 121)
The Great Service (Canticle settings for the daily office from the 1559 Book of Common Prayer)
    Magnificat
    Nunc dimittis
Though Amaryllis dance in green
In winter cold -- Whereat an ant
This sweet and merry month
Christe qui lux es et dies
Ye sacred muses
My mind to me a kingdom is
Infelix ego
O Lord, make they servant Elizabeth
