The Journey of the Mayflower
2020 marks 400 years since William Bradford and his fellow pilgrims set out on their fateful journey across the Atlantic in the Mayflower, seeking freedom from persecution. England in 1620 was a country rife with religious and political division, standing on the brink of civil war. But the age also spawned some of the finest music ever composed in the land, with Gibbons, Tomkins and the aged Byrd overseeing the late flowering of the English musical Renaissance.
This performance marks the start of Stile Antico’s Mayflower400 UK tour commemorating the many regional pilgrims who sailed to a new life on this famous ship. Be the first to ‘hear all about it’ and join us in the glorious acoustic of Beverley Minster.
