Observance of a Holy Lent: Music of Byrd & Tallis

February 18 @ 10:15 am - 11:30 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:15am on Sunday, repeating until March 25, 2018

William Byrd and Thomas Tallis were two of the greatest composers of the Tudor Renaissance. Working under four monarchs meant writing different styles of music, some Catholic and some Protestant. During the season of Lent, the Parish Choir will survey the Latin motets of Byrd, juxtaposed with Tallis’s English settings of Archbishop Parker’s Psalter.
