8 Forbidden Mass

A spooky, sombre song sung by four voices in a semi-secret spot.

As an encore to their rain-soaked Night\Shift 2015 performances in Gaol Garden , the Katherine Road Quartet returns to unleash even more Renaissance polyphony on the downtown core! This pop-up a cappella performance features music written during the English Reformation, when to practice Catholicism was considered treason. It is music that speaks to the exiled soul, drawing on longing and beauty that transcend modern times.

Gather together in one of DTK’s best in-plain-sight secret spaces to experience William Byrd’s Mass for Four Voices. Three 20-minute sets will be performed; times & location TBA.

The Katherine Road Quartet are Sheila Dietrich, Rich Hryztak, Sarah Pearson and Joel Vanderzee.
