Featuring The Gesualdo Six + Abendmusik
An immersive staged mass celebrating the 400-year legacy of William Byrd
Created and directed by Bill Barclay

England’s finest Renaissance composer was a covert Catholic facing brutal prosecution in the English Reformation. Nonetheless, he persisted, composing clandestine services for worshippers who risked everything for their faith. Hear Byrd’s divine Mass for Five Voices as he intended: sung one-on-a-part in strictest secrecy.

This unique concert experience theatrically places the audience in the center of a conversation around freedom of belief today. Featuring The Gesualdo Six, the renowned British singers taking the world by storm, and Abendmusik viol consort from NYC.

Commissioned by St Martin in the Fields and Washington National Cathedral for Byrd400.

New Mexico debut performance
