The contents of the third volume devoted to Byrd’s 1605 collection represent the second half of its title, Gradualia ac Cantiones Sacrae. With one exception, the pieces are not ‘graduals’ or Propers of the Mass, but devotional works, probably intended for domestic use and reflecting the intense and all-embracing spirituality of Roman Catholic practice in Byrd’s England.
