6/16: NEW WORLD POLYPHONY
LISTEN IN PLACE
"A wonderfully crystalline performance" - Gramophone
Join the Byrd Ensemble for a series of online broadcasts in the comfort of your own home as we explore lesser-known treasures from the Renaissance. This polyphonic tasting is bound to please the senses and lift the spirits through a sampling of Mexican, Portuguese, and English polyphony. Paired with these rarely performed works is an intimate look into who the Byrds really are—no doubt this will reveal some interesting Byrd ‘notes.’
In addition to the newly-produced content this season, we will be broadcasting some of our favorite performances and recordings over the years.
