Byrd 400: Before the Dawn

From £12 to £20 (concessions available)

Join the vocal collective SANSARA to mark the quarter centenary of the death of William Byrd, the most famous of England’s Tudor musicians. Alongside some of his most enduring works, rarely-performed gems tell the story of a recusant Catholic within the turbulent Tudor court and church. Works by his teacher and friend Thomas Tallis and colleague Philippe De Monte complement Byrd’s musical genius, variety and invention, celebrating his remarkable ability to find – from the darkest and most anguished depths – a longing and hope for a new dawn.

The full programme can be found on Oxford Festival of the Arts' website
