Byrdís Great Service - lifting the lid on a masterpiece

Orlando Chamber Choir
James Weeks, director

William Byrd: from Great Service: Magnificat, Nunc dimittis and Kyrie
William Byrd: Make ye joy to God
William Byrd: O Lord, make thy servant Elizabeth
William Byrd: Praise our Lord, all ye Gentiles
William Byrd: Even from the depth
William Byrd: Come help O God
William Byrd: How shall a young man prone to ill
William Byrd: O Lord, how long wilt thou forget

Join Orlando Chamber Choir for an all-day summer workshop at the National Musicianís Church, directed by James Weeks. The repertoire is based on William Byrdís magnificent Great Service, written around 1580 when the Anglican style was still in its infancy. The workshop explores how Byrd uses the various voice parts to maximum effect, constantly changing the scoring and creating exciting variations in musical colour and tonality. The Great Service is contrasted with a number of smaller songs, psalms and anthems from the programme below.

All choral singers are welcome but pre-booking is essential and good sight-reading skills are a pre-requisite. The ticket price includes scores, interval drinks and cake.
