[WORLDKINGS] Journey to seek extraordinary record holders around the world (P.53) - Composer William Byrd (England) : One of the great masters of European Renaissance music.

09-09-2020

(WorldKings.org) It's 1611 and you need some new keyboard music for your dinner party. At the printer you pick up a new volume of keyboard music, which you notice is written by a man named William Byrd. Then you rush to church to make the morning service, and the choir sings music -- also by William Byrd. On your way home you stop at court to take care of business and hear the Queen's consort playing a composition by William Byrd. 'Who is this guy?' you wonder. 'It's like he's everywhere!' And he is. He's William Byrd, the Superman of 16th and 17th century music.
