This concert was originally due to be held in the 2020 Beverley Early Music Festival, but was postponed due to COVID-19. We are delighted to be able to present it in the 2021 edition.
2020 marked 400 years since William Bradford and his fellow pilgrims set out on their fateful journey across the Atlantic in the Mayflower, seeking freedom from persecution. England in 1620 was a country rife with religious and political division, standing on the brink of civil war. But the age also spawned some of the best music ever composed in the land, with Gibbons, Tomkins and the aged Byrd overseeing the late owering of the English musical Renaissance.
