BOOK TICKETS 

William Byrd (1543-1623) was unarguably one of the greatest masters of the Renaissance.  A recognised genius in his own time, referred to by his fellows as “a Father of Musicke”, Byrd’s distinctive musical voice was one of great depth, infinite variety and character. Joined by soprano Roberta Diamond, we present Byrd’s finest consort songs plus masterpieces of the viol consort repertoire.
