About the event
This summer (29th June - 2nd July), we celebrate William Byrd, one of the greatest composers of the Renaissance who died in 1623.
Byrd’s prolific output and dogged pursuit of his Roman Catholic faith during one of the most tumultuous periods in English history are a remarkable illustration of the power of the human spirit and the creativity it can engender.
To mark his 400th anniversary, an exceptional cohort of musicians gather in the Temple Church to perform consort, keyboard and choral music by this towering figure in English music. Join them in one of London’s most beautiful and historic churches, for a feast of exquisite music.
