Choir of St. Luke in the Fields, directed by David Shuler
William Byrd’s monumental Great
Service is often described as the “crown jewel” of Anglican sacred music.
It is one of his most magnificent creations, awesome in scale and hugely
demanding, with intricate and complex ten-part polyphony. The program will also
include psalms, anthems and organ works by Byrd. Pre-concert lecture at 7 PM.
