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.

William Byrd on a Classical Journey

Our local church is proud to have an association with William Byrd, Renaissance’s great composer, but imagine how pleased we were to hear from Luch Càise-Dearg, the presenter of a programme called ‘Classical Journey’ on Phonic FM in Exeter in delightful Devon. Not only has the station given a plug to the William Byrd Festival here in Stondon Massey but also has a blog entry on their programme website which is well worth a look.
