Dun Laoghaire Choral Society and Music Director David Brophy present the Triumph of Oriana, an evening of sacred and secular Elizabethan choral works on Nov 14th next in St Ann's Church, Dawson St, Dublin 2 at 8pm.
The concert will feature William Byrd's Mass for Four Voices, first published in London in the early 1590s. It is one of three setting of the Catholic mass that Byrd wrote at a time when religious persecution was rife.
On a lighter note, the choir will also sing a selection of Elizabethan madrigals. Madrigals were usually secular songs written traditionally for small groups of singers, featuring two or more separate melodies to a simple text. They began in Italy in the 14th century but reached their peak in 15th century Elizabethan England.
We will be singing a range of madrigals by some of the most famous composers of the time: Thomas Morley, Thomas Weelkes and Thomas Tomkins.
Tickets are available for purchase at the door (€20 and €15 for students) and online at
