The Tudors

Sacred motets of Tallis, Sheppard, Byrd, and others

Motets of John Taverner, Thomas Tallis

John Sheppard, Christopher Tye, and William Byrd.

In a new series of programs devoted to vocal polyphony, the Washington Bach Consort will transport you to 16th-century England. Revel in a bespoke selection of sacred motets written by the finest composers to serve at the pleasure of four Tudor monarchs, from Henry VIII to Elizabeth I. This music is truly of another world, and as a Venetian ambassador of the period was known to have said of the English Chapel Royal choristers performing this music, it sounded “more divine than human.”

Tamera Luzzatto & David Leiter, Friday underwriters
