About the Festival

Widely considered one of the greatest Renaissance composers, William Byrd (1539/40–1623) had a profound impact on composers in his native England as well as in continental Europe. His sacred and secular polyphony, keyboard works, and consort music continue to inspire generations of composers and performers alike. Commemorating the 400th anniversary of his death, Bienen School ensembles, faculty, and special guests celebrate his legacy.
