Programme Note

In a time of religious extremism, two catholic musicians lived in fear of persecution. Through the trust of the protestant Queen Elizabeth I, they became England’s greatest composers. The award-winning ORA Singers celebrates the music and courage of William Byrd and Thomas Tallis, placing their works alongside specially commissioned modern reflections.
