The "Virgin Queen" Elizabeth I was the focal point of all England - the subject, dedicatee and audience for much of the music composed and performed throughout her legendary reign.

Brian Wilson gave a very positive review of the featured album below in the current Download Roundup in MusicWeb International.  In the complete review, he mentions many of the other featured releases below.

"Despite the (very) high quality of other recordings of this music, this new release sweeps the board, if only because it offers the only current collection to bring all the music together.  For all Tallis’s partial success and Byrd’s almost total success in writing for the new English liturgy, it is their Latin settings that show their absolute command of renaissance polyphony and nowhere more so than in this collection dedicated to Queen Elizabeth in 1575 – 17 pieces by each of these loyal recusants to mark the 17th anniversary of her reign."  Read the entire review here that also says some very nice things about ClassicsOnline and Naxos Music Library.

Vocal Music (Renaissance) - TALLIS, T. / BYRD, W. (Cantiones Sacrae 1575) (Alamire, Skinner)
Vocal Music (Renaissance) - TALLIS, T. / BYRD, W. (Cantiones Sacrae 1575) (Alamire, Skinner)
