As many of you will know, Gavin Turner gave his last concert with the William Byrd Choir (which he founded in 1973) at Norwich Cathedral at the end of July 2018. Most of our recordings (from the 1970s and 1980s) have now been deleted, although our Hyperion CDs are still available to special order (and/or possibly as downloads) from Hyperion themselves. We would like to make one or two new recordings of some of Gavin’s favourite Byrd motets if we can raise the capital to do so. We will keep the website and the mailing list open for perhaps another year unless and until we are able to issue these new recordings. Fortunately, since the William Byrd Choir started 45 years ago, there are many more performances of Byrd both on record and in concert these days, and we would particularly recommend the Byrd performances by Stile Antico and Gallicantus, both of whom allow the music to breathe and Byrd to express his often deeply felt emotions. We would especially like to thank our Norfolk followers in recent years who have turned out regularly for our annual concerts in North Norfolk; we know from the standing ovation that many of them were at Norwich Cathedral on 28th July this year.
