Byrd: The Tallis Scholars sing William Byrd

"England has never produced a greater composer than William Byrd. His music for the Anglican Church has been sung without interruption since the 16th century. In stark contrast his Catholic music was not heard for over 300 years. This specially priced selection of previously issued recordings compares the formal public style of Byrd's Anglican works like The Great Service with the plangent intimacy of his Masses and motets." (Peter Phillips)
