Byrd Mass for 4 Voices

  • St Mary-le-Bow Cheapside London, EC2V 6AU United Kingdom (map)

The Brandenburg Choral Festival of London welcomes back The Ionian Singers and conductor Timothy Salter for this programme of music ranging from the Renaissance to the present day.

Five movements of Byrd's Mass for Four Voices open and close the concert, which also includes motets by Gibbons, Weelkes and twentieth-century English composer, Edmund Rubbra. Violinist Eulalie Charland joins the choir for Nystedt's Ave Maria, and a short chorale prelude by Timothy Salter on J.S. Bach's Es ist genug, as well as providing some instrumental interludes. Join us for this interesting programme of English and Nordic music in the delightful acoustic of St Mary-le-Bow.
