 KorMalta | William Byrd – Mass & Motets

21 June 2023 @ 7:00 pm

Date and time
Wednesday 21st June, 2023, 7pm

William Byrd was a prominent English composer of the Renaissance period, particularly known for his sacred choral music, which includes Masses, motets, and anthems, as well as secular vocal and instrumental music.

One of Byrd’s most famous works is his Four Voices Mass, which is a setting of the Ordinary of the Catholic Mass for four vocal parts – a shining example of the English Renaissance, a period of great creativity and artistic achievement in England. His mass and motets have stood the test of time. They are a beautiful and moving example of sacred choral music, and it’s just as relevant and inspiring today as it was when it was first composed. Byrd’s work is historically significant – composed during a time of religious conflict. Byrd was a Catholic in a Protestant country, and his music reflects his struggle to maintain his faith.
