MUHLY MEETS BYRD
Dates & Tickets
Opening our 20th Anniversary season and to honor 400 years since the death of our namesake, William Byrd, this program features a world premiere commissioned by the Byrd Ensemble. The new work, by American composer Nico Muhly, is based on Byrd's motet, Ne irascaris, Domine and will be conducted by Muhly himself.
The program also features other favorites by Byrd and his contemporaries and will conclude with a performance of Tallis’s monumental 40-part motet, Spem in alium.
We are excited to be presented by Portland-based choral ensemble, In Medio, for our program on Sunday, October 22 at 3pm. The program will open with a performance by In Medio and will combine forces for a performance of Tallis's Spem in alium. (Nico Muhly will not be present for this performance.)
