Renaissance Reflections: Music for Lent

The Fifth Avenue Chamber Choir, directed by Ryan Jackson

Friday, March 22, 2024 • 7 pm, Sanctuary and livestream

The Fifth Avenue Chamber Choir performs highlights from the Renaissance era, when composers like Byrd, Palestrina, Tallis and Victoria created a golden age of choral music. At the heart of the program is the Mass for Four Voices by William Byrd, one of the period’s greatest masterpieces. Composed during the religious turmoil of Elizabethan England, the Mass showcases Byrd’s tremendous ability to express his deeply held spiritual convictions through delicate strands of polyphony and evocative harmonies. The result is a work of profound faith and exquisite beauty.
