The Western Wind Masses - Taverner, Tye and Sheppard

The Western Wind Masses of John Taverner, Christopher Tye and John Sheppard make a unique set. Not only was there no other example in English renaissance music of a linked series of mass compositions by different composers, there was also no precedent in English composition for a mass based on a secular tune.

The Taverner and Tye masses are also available on The Tallis Scholars sing Tudor Church Music Volume 1 and the Sheppard mass is also available on The Tallis Scholars sing Tudor Church Music Volume 2, both are double albums at special prices.
