Byrd’s music for the Anglican service remains one of the least appreciated areas of his output. Its manner is generally restrained; its sources, for the most part, are problematical. Abjuring word painting and imitation, settings of the Preces and Responses, Psalms, Service and Litany rely on harmonic variety for their musical interest and continuity.
