Join the Tallis Consort for an evening of the finest works of William Byrd – arguably England’s most eminent composer. You will hear the aching recusancy of his earlier-composed Lamentations of Jeremiah to the renewed hope heard in later motets such as Laudibus in Sanctis.
This concert is for all – from the often performed to the lesser, whilst taking the listener on an illustrated journey of Byrd’s tumultuous yet incredible life to commemorate the 400th anniversary of his death.
The Tallis Consort are excited to perform our programme at the glorious venue of Beverley Minster. We are very privileged to sing in the quire of the Minster and to contribute to the ongoing musical life of this beautiful building.
Beverley Minster is the Parish Church of St. John and St. Martin and was erected between 1220 and 1425. As a place of worship within the heart of the Beverley community, the minster attracts visitors from around the world. The minster is also host to a number of community, arts and cultural events.
