The book begins with an authoritative biographical account, incorporating much newly discovered material. Byrd's year of birth, and his family's origins and occupations (ranging from musical instrument-making to money lending), are established for the first time. The second part of the book examines Byrd's development as a composer, and the nature of his achievement. It draws on a wide range of up to date information, and pays particular attention to the chronology of his works. There are many music examples, and nine pages of plates."@en ;
    schema:description "This thoroughly researched book is completed by a series of appendices, among which is a sixteenth-century genealogy of the Byrd family, and a group of wills that include Byrd and some of his relations. A full catalogue of Byrd's works, a bibliography and indexes round off a volume which is indispensable, both to historians and to everyone with an interest in early music and the England of Elizabeth I and James I."@en ;
