Welcome to our Festival blog

We are a small congregation who organised a highly successful 'William Byrd Festival' in May 2011 to celebrate the life and work of the village's Elizabethan composer, William Byrd (c.1540 - 1623). In 2012 we played host to the world-famous choir The Cardinall's Musick under their director Andrew Carwood.

This website contains everything you need to know about William Byrd and his links with Stondon Massey. The church is open for services, of course, and on the second Sunday afternoon in the month during the summer.

Good luck with all the arrangements Andrew, we are looking forward to hearing more about this. (Let me know if a face painter would be appropriate LOL!) Kind regards, Angela, Paul & Tilly

Thanks Angela, Paul and Tilly: and for all your help at Stondon Massey Church's Summer Sale yesterday when a face painter was definitely needed. I would be interested to know how a face painter could achieve a Byrd lookalike. That goatee beard could be quite a challenge! We are open to ideas, so whilst on the subject of hair - this could be a fringe event!!! (Definitely LOL - laught out loud!).
