Songs of Sundrie Natures:

Songs of Sundrie Natures
This is one of William Byrd's most famous compositions.  This along with a collection he released a year earlier called Psalms, Sonnets and Songs of Sadness and Pietie are both recognized to have extremely impressive use of vocal parallels, which Byrd synced with the instruments. This is also notable because it is a secular volume, but was dedicated to a Catholic.  This was to show his loyalty to the Crown, while also keeping true to his beliefs. Image source:
