CANTORES IN ECCLESIA postpones 2021 William Byrd Festival

July 6, 2021

It is with sadness and regret that I announce the postponement of the 2021 William Byrd Festival. While public activities are slowly re-emerging after restrictions implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic are lifted, continued restrictions to international travel from the United Kingdom will not be relaxed before the end of July at the earliest. As Festival Artistic Director Mr. Mark Williams works and resides in the United Kingdom, this travel restriction prevents us from finalizing plans for the William Byrd Festival this year. 

We anticipate reestablishing the annual William Byrd Festival in the summer of 2022, now scheduled for August 5-21, 2022. We eagerly look forward to seeing you then.

Many Blessings,
Dean

Dean Applegate, Festival Director and co-founder of the William Byrd Festival



Artistic Director Mark Williams writes from Oxford:

The experience of the last 16 months may have given us a greater awareness and understanding of some of the privations encountered by William Byrd and his fellow Catholics during the years of the English Reformation. After a period in which so much of what we love has been taken from us, I had hoped that this year's William Byrd Festival might represent the beginning of a return to those things we cherish - music-making and fellowship. But that was not to be, and I am extremely sorry that I cannot travel to the United States at this time. The musicians, lecturers, clergy, supporters and friends associated with the Byrd Festival have become friends, and to be separated from friends for such a long time is challenging. Byrd's response to hardship and oppression was to write some of the most beautiful music we know, and I hope that we might also respond creatively and strengthened by faith when the time comes for us to be together once more. Portland and Cantores in Ecclesia remain in my thoughts and prayers, and I look forward to seeing you very soon.
