Commemorating 400 years since the death of William Byrd, Stile Antico weaves together the strands of the extraordinary English composer’s complex life as both pillar of the Protestant musical establishment and faithful servant to the underground Catholic community. The program includes some of his most beloved works, including Haec dies, This sweet and merry month of May, and Ne irascaris, alongside lesser-known gems by his pupils Thomas Morley, Peter Philips, and Thomas Tomkins.
