In presenting all of Tye's instrumental works known to survive in complete form, this edition provides a fresh perspective on the output of a composer remembered chiefly for his vocal music. Scored for a consort of viols, these pieces reveal a flair for technical complexity, which suggests that the composer, here free of text-imposed restrictions, gladly undertook experiments denied him with a sung text. This edition includes twenty-one In Nomines, four Dum Transissets, and miscellaneous pieces for five voices.
In Nomine (21 pieces)
Dum Transisset (4 pieces)
Rubum Quem
Christus Resurgens
Lawdes Deo
O Lux
Sit Fast
