Sacred Music: Tallis and Byrd in London

Sunday 6 April 2008 13:00-14:00 (Radio 3)

To accompany the Sacred Music series on BBC Four, Harry Christophers talks to Catherine Bott about how Tallis and his contemporary Byrd survived in London, and the impact that religious and political changes had on the development of the English choral tradition in the late 16th century. The music includes Latin and English text settings of works by both Tallis and Byrd.
