The Gesualdo Six

Secret Byrd

With Fretwork | Directed by Bill Barclay | Produced by Concert Theatre Works
Secret Byrd

We are delighted to be bringing Secret Byrd to Salisbury Medieval Hall!

In this immersive performance, The Gesualdo Six collaborate with Fretwork to celebrate the 400 year legacy of William Byrd. The musicians gather by candlelight to worship in secret as Byrd’s incredible Mass for 5 voices is theatrically interspersed with his virtuosic music for strings. The event is secular yet staged to invite the audience into the deeply personal use that Byrd intended – a private mass for secret worship.

The performance is approximately 80 minutes without an interval, and there will be 2 shows on the evening. Please head to the ticketing page for more information on show times. There will be one moment of complete blackout during the performance.

Secret Byrd was created and directed by Bill Barclay and produced by Concert Theatre Works.
