Living and composing as a Catholic in Protestant England during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, William Byrd practiced his religion clandestinely. The intimate Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel provides the perfect atmosphere for Music from a Secret Chapel, a vocal chamber program featuring eight of the Santa Fe Desert Chorale’s early-music specialists. They will perform works of Byrd and Sistine Chapel composers including Giovanni Palestrina’s Surge Illuminare Jerusalem.
