October 27, 2013 – “Music and the 40 Martyrs of England and Wales”
// October 27th, 2013 // Sacred Liturgy / Sacred Music
October 25th is the feast of the 40 Martyrs of England and Wales, who died for the Faith in the 16th century. This program will feature music associated with English Catholics during this period, and primarily the music of William Byrd. In addition, I will play some contemporary music composed in honor of these brave, holy martyrs.
