We pay tribute to the 400th anniversary of the death of English Renaissance master William Byrd with a performance of his iconic Mass for Five Voices. Alongside Byrd’s iconic composition, In Medio will present a collection of African American spirituals, which all contain coded language designed to lead enslaved people to freedom. Join In Medio for a powerful and inspiring evening of singing.
