The Marian Consort: Singing in Secret

Saturday 29th February 2020, 8:00 pm

William Byrd Miserere mei Deus, Venite exultemus Domino, Mass for All Saints
Nicholas Strogers Non me vincat, Deus meus
Derrick Gerarde Sive vigilem
Peter Phillips Salve Regina
Martin Peerson Laboravi in Gemitu Meo

This programme draws on the rich corpus of music written by William Byrd, England’s greatest Renaissance composer. A devout Catholic, Byrd lived the life of an Elizabethan recusant and he provided a comprehensive compendium of music for the Catholic mass, which in the early  seventeenth century was still being conducted in clandestine services held in the private houses of the nobility.

Many of Byrd’s chosen motet texts, with their themes of desolation and a desire for divine intervention, have been seen to allude to the plight of Catholics in England during his lifetime. Interspersed with Byrd’s music are motets by his contemporaries, many of whom shared his recusant sensibilities.
