Summary

The World of William Byrd sees John Harley build on his previous work, William Byrd: Gentleman of the Chapel Royal (Ashgate, 1997), in order to place the composer more clearly in his social context. Harley reveals how Byrd's music emerged from a series of overlapping family, business and social networks. These networks are examined closely, as well as Byrd's navigation within and between them. Harley further shows how these networks provided opportunities for, and influenced, the music Byrd wrote. Harley's ground-breaking approach provides a model for the writing of historical biographies.
