Topic: Christopher Tye


  
  HOASM: Christopher Tye
Christopher Tye, a contemporary of John Sheppard and Thomas Tallis, was very much a composer for the Reformed Church, and seems to have flourished chiefly in the reign of Edward VI.
Tye was a member of Edward VII's Chapel, and dedicated his Acts of the Apostles to the young king.
The 'restoring of the Catholic faith' mentioned in Tye's piece was not a plea for the return to papal allegiance, but for that restoring of the church to its primitive state, free of medieval abuses, which was the aim of the Reformers.

Christopher Tye was born in abour 1505, or perhaps a little earlier if he is to be identified with the boy named 'Tye' who was a chorister of King's College Cambridge, from 1508 until 1512.
Tye's career thus spanned the English Reformation, and he composed for both the ancient Latin rite and its vernacular successor.
The Chapel Royal, with its thirty-two men and ten or twelve boys, supplied Tye with a rich, dense body of adult voices that in the scoring of the period was commonly divided into five parts: bass, low-range tenor (tending to baritone), two full-range tenors and alto.

Tye was an English organist and composer of choral and instrumental music.
Tye's sparing use of imitation and the general absence of soloist passages gives his music a tighter cohesiveness than that of the previous generation - his Mass "Euge Bone" is perhaps the most impressive example of the period.
Tye is credited as the first significant composer of instrumental chamber music, and his examples are of uniformly high quality.

It seems likely that it is the small quantity of works by Christopher Tye that have survived that has prevented him from being better known than he is, for the merits of his surviving works hardly account for his obscurity.
Tye reversed this by keeping the melody in the Mean part throughout.
Tye takes full advantage of the contrasts in color available by reducing the scoring of extended sections of such a long work.

 Tye: Cathedral Music   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Christopher Tye (c.1505-1573) was one of England's foremost composers, who wrote both Latin- and English-texted works in a variety of styles, like his more famous contemporary Thomas Tallis.
The 6-voice 'Euge Bone' mass, certainly among the finest English compositions of the 16th century, is his masterpiece, utilizing the wide sonorities of earlier insular composition as well as more modern imitative writing and harmonic control.
It has been conjectured that the piece was Tye's exercise for the Cambridge MusD degree he took in 1545.
