Byrd at 400

Byrd at 400: The Great Service
Choir of St. Luke in the Fields

As a fitting celebration of the 400th anniversary of William Byrd’s death, we present his monumental Great Service, 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.

Vespers in Venice

May 2, 2024 7:30 pm (6:30 pm Lecture)

Vespers in Venice - Music of Claudio Monteverdi
Choir of St. Luke in the Fields
with Baroque in the Fields orchestra

The concert will feature the music of Claudio Monteverdi for the service of Vespers, including pieces from the Selva morale e spirituale anthology of 1641 and the ever-popular Beatus vir. The service of Vespers in seventeenth-century Venice was a musical extravaganza, a Concert Spirituel. The church music of Monteverdi and his contemporaries reflected the “modern style” of the day, with dazzling displays of vocal virtuosity and a kaleidoscope of instrumental colors.
