The Tyndale Service (2016)

The Tyndale Service is in memory of the Bible translator and martyr William Tyndale, who was put to death by strangulation and burning at Vilvoorde, near Brussels, on 6 October, 1536.
It is a short polyphonic communion service in early sixteenth-century style for unaccompanied SATB voices. The text is an early form of the Anglican communion liturgy found in Merbecke's setting. 
It is based on a sixteenth-century English melody, The Western Wynde.
