CHRISTOPHER TYE (1505 - 1573)
The English composer Christopher Tye seems to have spent much of his life at or near Cambridge, and at Ely Cathedral.
Tye’s church music includes Latin and English works, settings of the Mass for the traditional Catholic liturgy, and English settings for the reformed liturgy under Edward VI.
Tye wrote compositions for instrumental consort, including a number of In Nomines, following the original example of his contemporary Taverner.
