The Odyssean Ensemble presents sacred motets by William Byrd, one of the finest English composers of the Renaissance period, in the stunning Chapel of one of London’s most historic landmarks, the Tower of London. The programme reflects Byrd’s struggle as a Catholic during the religious storms of the Reformation when many persecuted Catholics were imprisoned at the Tower of London. Byrd expresses his torment through works full of anguish and grief, including Tristitia et Anxietas and Deus venerunt gentes.
