Simon Russell Beale explores the history of Western sacred music, focusing on Thomas Tallis and William Byrd, two composers at the heart of England's musical renaissance. His journey back to Tudor England features visits to the Chapel Royal and a private home, where Catholic music would have been performed in secret. Award-winning choir the Sixteen perform, conducted by Harry Christophers.
