Christopher Tye was a 16th-century English composer and organist who received the degree of Doctor of Music from both Cambridge and Oxford. He was one of the first composers to write music for viol consort, and one of the most important of his generation. Over 30 instrumental pieces by him survive, including 21 In Nomine settings mostly in 5 parts.
After two acclaimed albums dedicated to John Jenkins, the viol consort The Spirit of Gambo presents Tye’s daring, uncompromising and strikingly beautiful music.

In existence since around 1985, The Spirit of Gambo is establishing an ever increasingly strong reputation with music of this kind, with their recent CD of John Jenkins’ music admired by Jonathan Woolf (see review). (...) There are a few other viol ensembles around, such as Phantasm and Parthenia, but Freek Bortlap’s players can stand equal to any, and beautiful recordings such as this can do The Spirit of Gambo no harm whatsoever.
