Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary

Published: 17th February 2021

Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary looks at oppression and patronage in the time of Bloody Mary. Three monumental works by Thomas Tallis, William Mundy, and Christopher Tye show how composers navigated choppy waters. With texts by William Forrest, and a glimpse at the sinister side of nursery rhymes.
