Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations where appropriate (June 2010) For other uses, see William Byrd (disambiguation) William Byrd William Byrd (1540 or late 1539 – 4 July 1623) was an English composer of the Renaissance . He wrote in many of the forms current in England at the time, including various types of sacred and secular polyphony , keyboard (the so-called virginalist school) and consort music.
edit Provenance
Our knowledge of Byrd's biography has expanded in recent years, thanks largely to the research of John Harley (Harley, 1997). Following the discovery of a document dated 2 October 1598 in which Byrd's age is given as ‘58 years or ther abouts’ it now appears that he was born in 1540 or late 1539. The older dating 1542–3 is derived from Byrd's will (endorsed on 22 November 1622) which describes him as ‘in the 80th year of my age’. It now becomes clear that it must have been drafted about three years earlier than the date of endorsement. Byrd was born in London , the son of a Thomas Byrd (not Thomas Byrd of the Chapel Royal) about whom little is known citation needed . Byrd had two brothers, Symond and John, and four sisters. It is clear from a reference in the prefatory material in the Tallis/Byrd

William Byrd
English composer, born in London in 1542 or 1543; died 4 July, 1623. He was the son of a musician, and studied music principally under Thomas Tallis . He became organist at Lincoln Cathedral in 1563, chorister in the Chapel Royal in 1570, and in 1575 received the title of Organist of the Chapel Royal without being obliged to perform the functions of that office. Byrd was the most distinguished contrapuntist and the most prolific composer of his time in England calls him the English Palestrina . He was the first Englishman to write madrigals, a form which originated in Italy in the thirteenth century, and received its highest development in the sixteenth century at the hands of Arcadelt and other masters. An organist and performer of the first order upon the virginals, Byrd wrote for the latter instrument an enormous number of compositions, many of which are played today. His chief significance lies , however, in his compositions for the Church , of which he produced a great many. In 1607 he published a collection of gradualia for the whole ecclesiastical year, among which is to be found a three-part setting of the words of the multitude in the

According to Wood, he was "bred up to musick under Thomas Tallis ." He was appointed organist of Lincoln Cathedral about 1563, and on the 14th of September 1568 was married at St. Margaret in the Close to Ellen or Julian Birley. On the 22nd of February 1569 he was sworn in as a member of the Chapel Royal, but he does not seem to have left Lincoln immediately. In the Chapel Royal he shared with Tallis the honorary post of organist, and on the 22nd of January 1575 the two composers obtained a license for twenty-one years from Queen Elizabeth I to print music and music-paper, a monopoly which does not seem to have been at all remunerative. In 1575 Byrd and Tallis published a collection of Latin motets for five and six voices, printed by Thomas Vautrollier. In 1578 Byrd and his family were living at Harlington, Middlesex.

William Byrd
Byrd was the leading English composer of his generation, and together with his continental colleagues Giovanni Palestrina (c.1525-1594) and Orlando de Lassus Byrd was probably born in Lincoln where he took up the post of organist at an early age. Later he accepted a position in the Royal Chapel of Queen Elizabeth, and retired at the age of fifty to a home at Stondon Massey near the Essex estate of one of his richest patrons, Sir John Petre. Byrd was a Catholic in Protestant England, and though this position demanded a certain amount of seclusion and discretion, his loyalty to the Crown was never in doubt. Indeed, Byrd continued to enjoy the favor of the Queen, as well as continuation of his privilege as sole holder of the publishing monopoly which had been awarded jointly to Byrd and Thomas Tallis (his teacher) before the latter's death. Byrd was able to publish Latin sacred music throughout his life, though opportunities for public performance in a liturgical setting would not have existed. These pieces were apparently performed in private residences, either as Latin songs in a setting similar to that of secular music, or at secret Catholic religious services. In either case, Byrd's Latin works were well-known during his lifetime, and continue to be the most widely performed of his compositions.

The greatest English composer of his generation, comparable in stature to his most distinguished continental contemporaries, William Byrd was a versatile composer. Although remaining a Catholic, loyalty that cost him considerable trouble in times of persecution in England, he served as a member of the Chapel Royal, providing music for the liturgy of the Church of England and, on a more private scale, for his fellow-Catholics. Church Music Byrd's compositions for the church may be separated into those for the Catholic liturgy and those designed for the officially recognised Church of England. The first category includes settings of the Mass for three, four and five voices, and a large quantity of other works for the various seasons of the church year. For the Church of England Byrd wrote a Great Service and three other service settings, using the texts of the Anglican liturgy. In addition to these compositions there are a number of anthems and psalm-settings, and consort songs with sacred texts of one sort or another. Vocal Music Byrd also wrote a number of secular consort songs, songs with accompaniment entrusted to varying numbers of instruments.
