Stondon Massey: William Byrd Festival

Members of the congregation at St Peter & St Paul Church, Stondon Massey, have announced plans to hold a 'William Byrd Festival' next May at the ancient church.

The ‘William Byrd Festival’ aims to:
- raise funds towards the upkeep of the ancient St Peter & St Paul Church, Stondon Massey (Essex), and its immediate surroundings
- raise the awareness and appreciation of William Byrd (c1539/40 – 1623), the Elizabethan composer, who died in 1623 having spent the previous 30 years as a resident of the village of Stondon Massey.
