For Radio 3's celebration of British music, Catherine Bott introduces a programme about the life and music of William Byrd, in conversation with conductor Andrew Carwood.

As part of Radio 3 Celebrating British Music, Catherine Bott introduces the second of two programmes about the life and music of William Byrd, in conversation with conductor Andrew Carwood of St Paul's Cathedral and The Cardinall's Musick.

Byrd is arguably one of the most prolific and versatile composer of the English Renaissance, who wrote in many of the forms current in England at the time, including various types of sacred and secular polyphony, keyboard (the so-called Virginalist school) and consort music.

Catherine Bott and Andrew Carwood present a comprehensive profile of the man and some of his most glorious music.
