William Byrd at Lincoln: A Symposium Commemorating the 400th Anniversary of the Composer’s Death

3-4 July 2023, Lincoln Cathedral
Call for Papers

2023 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of William Byrd. Lincoln Cathedral was Byrd’s first known place of employment. While in Lincoln, Byrd worked as Organist and Master of the Choristers from 1563-72, married his wife Julian, who came from a Lincolnshire family, and had his first children. Even after his departure, Byrd continued to receive payments for the continued provision of new music to the cathedral.

Lincoln Cathedral is hosting a festival of events on the weekend of 30 June-4 July 2023 and invites the academic community (in its broadest sense) to a symposium that will take place on 3-4 July, in conjunction with Byrd-themed choral services and the dedication of a new memorial to Byrd at the final Evensong.
