In this 65 minute documentary by the BBC, Charles Hazlewood explores the life and music of William Byrd, Catholic Composer for a Protestant Queen, and the troubled times that produced some of the most intimate and passionate sacred music ever written.

| For their recital tomorrow at 1pm, Tyler Duncan and Erika Switzer have paired Schumann’s beloved song cycle of love and loss with the four songs Brahms wrote for Clara Schumann in anticipation of her death and on texts from Luther’s translation of the Bible. |
One of Canada’s most successful baritones and a native of Vancouver, Tyler Duncan is a regular guest on the world’s most important concert and opera stages. For this concert he is joined by his partner, on and off stage, internationally-renowned collaborative pianist Erika Switzer. The Vancouver-born baritone and pianist are partners both personally and musically, but are each national treasures in their own rights. Duncan recently performed at the Metropolitan Opera in a production of Puccini's Madame Butterfly, and Switzer has previously won the Best Pianist award at the Robert Schumann International Vocal competition.
This event will be the debut of a recently refurbished 1870 Broadwood pianoforte gifted to the organization by Dr. Patricia M Lee and Dr. Nicholas Lee. It is a stunning addition to our collection for which we are extremely grateful.
