Christopher Tye flourished as a church musician in England during the mid-sixteenth century. A direct contemporary of Thomas Tallis, he held the prestigious post of Master of Choristers at Ely cathedral and successfully managed to compose music for both Protestant and Catholic services during a politically unstable time. Henry VIII was a fan, asserting: ‘England one god, one truth, one doctor hath for music’s art—and that is Dr Tye’ (Tye himself had Protestant leanings).

What you have here is a well-performed sampling of music from England in the early 16th century. Because of the way the program is organized, the listener's mind may try to organize it into something more coherent than that, but it may not succeed. The centerpiece is the Western Wind Mass of John Taverner, which is broken up with secular pieces and then followed by music that might have been heard at the court of Henry VIII.

As far as is known, Frye was an Englishman who may never have left England; one thinks of him as a 'northerne' musician. His music is 'wynd' music, that is, texted and thus conceived to be sung, sounded by means of the breath. The title of this CD also refers to an early-fourteenth-century poem "Blou, northerne wynd, send thou me my suetyng", beautifully set to music and sung by John Fleagle (1952-1999), who also performed Frye's music, and whose spirit will always live in our remembrance. –Crawford Young
