Composer William Byrd was a covert Catholic facing brutal persecution during the Counter-Reformation in the 16th century. Hear Byrd’s Mass for 5 Voices as he intended: sung for worship in strictest secrecy.

Co-commissioned by St. Martin-in-the-Fields, London, and Washington National Cathedral, Secret Byrd has sold-out dozens of performances across the US and UK. Part concert, part theatre, this immersive staged mass invites you to commune with some of the most ravishing music ever written.
