Win: Classical music tickets

THE Times is offering readers the chance to win tickets to an evening of delightful classical music.

The Cardinall’s Musick will take to the stage at St George’s for their debut visit, with a sublime men’s-voice programme of music for Passiontide by England’s first truly great composer, William Byrd on March 24.

Byrd found himself caught between his own beliefs and a volatile religious landscape, and it is to this we owe the dark, passionate intensity of much of his Latin sacred music.

This performance begins with Byrd’s Mass for Four Voices, one of three great unaccompanied polyphonic mass settings Byrd composed in the 1590s.

The Cardinall’s Musick is widely renowned for their extensive study of English Renaissance music, and have won the Gramophone Award for Early Music no fewer than four times.
