founded by Henry VIII. The music, from a Royal Choirbook of 1516 (London British Library MS Roy.11.e.xi), includes songs by
Henry VIII and the tribute motets by Robert Fayrfax, Philippe Verdelot, and John Taverner, sung by Alamire, directed by David Skinner,
with music for the sackbuts and cornetts of QuintEssential, directed by Richard Thomas, and for gothic harp.
