In 1575 Thomas Tallis, then an ‘aged man’, and his pupil and friend William Byrd, who was in his mid to late 30s,
paid tribute to Elizabeth I by selecting 17 motets each for their Cantiones Sacrae (‘Sacred Songs’), the first major
printed collection of music to be published in England. Many of these works have since become staple in the
repertoire of church and chamber choirs throughout the world. This is the first recording to present the Cantiones
in their entirety, by the same group of singers, and in the composers’ original order of publication.

Alamire and Obsidian Records are very grateful for the financial support of Mrs Patricia Brown, without whose help this project would not have been possible.
