Orlando Chamber Choir's first concert with its new musical director, Richard Wilberforce, focuses on William Byrd's secret Catholic devotional music, written in Protestant times. The famous Mass for 4 Voices is a centre-piece of the repertoire which also includes Philippe de Monte’s glorious eight-part Super flumina Babylonis, lute songs by Dowland and solo works for lute and organ.
