A choir group stood in front of a gold covered wall in a cathedral.

Internationally renowned ensemble The Tallis Scholars return to Clifton Cathedral with a programme marking the 400th anniversary of composer William Byrd.

Join them on an extraordinary choral journey and explore how the soundworld of Byrd and his Tudor contemporaries left a lasting impression on composers up to the present day.
