Masses for 3-5 voices (William Byrd)
Composer: William Byrd
Description: Byrd's three settings of the Ordinary of the Latin Mass were published in undated editions, without title-pages, sometime between 1592 and 1595. The printer, presumably Thomas East, is nowhere named in the prints, although Byrd's own name appears defiantly at the head of every page.
