Weelkes, Bennet, Morley | excerpts from The Triumphs of Oriana

For the first time in the ensemble’s history, The Singers present a concert of music solely from the Renaissance era. As the political and religious winds changed rapidly throughout the Tudor Era, WILLIAM BYRD composed his Mass for Four Voices late in life after a conversion to the Catholic Church (while serving the Protestant Queen Elizabeth I). The Singers also will share portions of The Triumphs of Oriana, a 1601 madrigal collection assembled by THOMAS MORLEY in the Queen’s honor.
