#PDtPBirthday 2017 Setlist Part 5: The rehabilitation of William Byrd

Another bit of a heads-up for what’s in store for attendees at Monday’s birthday celebration. (See yesterday’s update here.)

December 2017

Christmas is a special time of year and it’s made even more so when you get to sing a corker like Zieleński‘s Viderunt omnes; that’s why it’s made it onto the birthday setlist.


November 2017

The last of our revisited masterworks is Miserere mei by Byrd. He had a lot of making up to do after letting us down so badly at our second birthday party (it was totally his fault, not ours), so this 5 voice marvel will surely put him back in our good books.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a PDtP Birthday without the traditional singing of that special (though possibly spurious) Bach chorale that everyone loves so very, very much:

But that’s not quite it for the setlist; there’s one more surprise work that we’ve never sung before, which will be revealed tomorrow…

I am a classical music enthusiast and a lover of choral music in particular. I run the Polyphony Down the Pub social/singing night, probably the most thrilling singing-Renaissance-motets-in-the-backroom-of-a-pub experience you could ever hope to have.
