Tickets for the 80 seat capacity William Byrd Festival at St Peter & St Paul Church are going well at this early stage. They are available now on a first come, first served basis and early booking is advised to avoid disappointment.
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.

Enlightening Concert by Writtle Singers
The Writtle Singers entertained their 'home crowd' last night with a concert exploring music on the theme of 'Light'. "Radiance" was well attended in the large church of All Saints. Once again many in the audience took home leaflets for the William Byrd Festival, the Writtle Singers next UK date after a visit to Zurich.
