The Tudors - The Tudor period was marked by the flourishing of sacred music in the chapels and cathedrals of England. Join us this week on Harmonia as we explore "The Tudors," from famous names such as Thomas Tallis and William Byrd, to the significantly more obscure. Our featured release is La Compagnia del Madrigale's 2017 recording of the Monteverdi Vespers.
