BBC Sacred Music Series Pt. 3 -Tallis, Byrd and the Tudors

Continuing this beautiful BBC documentary on sacred music, actor and former chorister Simon Russell Beale tells the story of Thomas Tallis and William Bryd, two Roman Catholic "musicians living in an age of uncertainty 500 years ago in England where only one religion was allowed, where worship was compulsory, and where every time a new monarch came to the throne, they changed the national faith."
