A programme illustrating the evolution of Early Tudor polyphony, through the Reformation to Tallis and Byrd. A selection to chart the development of English composition from the great pre-Reformation works from the time of Henry VIII to music for the first English prayer-book of 1549 to the restored Catholic Church under Mary Tudor. The programme culminates with masterworks from Tallis and Byrd’s Cantiones Sacrae of 1575, marking the birth of England’s musical Renaissance.
