Ο Βρετανός William Byrd, ένας ακόμα από τους μεγάλους της αναγεννησιακής πολυφωνίας, θεωρείται, μαζί με τον Orlando Gibbons, ο σημαντικότερος συνθέτης της ελισαβετιανής περιόδου. Ανήκει στις πολύ ιδιαίτερες προσωπικές μου προτιμήσεις.
Ακούμε τη λειτουργία του για την ημέρα του Πάσχα, Mass In Tempore Paschali. Από το φωνητικό σύνολο Chanticleer.

The British William Byrd, another master of Renaissance polyphonic music, is considered, along with Orlando Gibbons, the greatest composer of the Elizabethan era. He is one of my favorite composers of all time.
We hear his mass for the day of Easter, Mass In Tempore Paschali. Performed by the vocal ensemble Chanticleer.

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !

Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
