Tudor music reflects but also soars above the religious and historical turbulence of its time. Byrd was a pupil of Tallis and the secrecy surrounding Byrd’s setting of the Mass for 4 voices, probably for a covert Catholic audience, explains why it is one of the most intensely personal and expressive settings of the period. Join us as we intersperse this music with Motets by Byrd and Tallis.
