Showing Composer Taverner, John

John Taverner (c. 1490 Ė 18 October 1545) was an English composer and organist, regarded as one of the most important English composers of his era.

Most of Taverner's music is vocal, and includes masses, Magnificats and motets. The bulk of his output is thought to date from the 1520s. His best-known motet is Dum Transisset Sabbatum. His best-known mass is based on a popular song, The Western Wynde (John Sheppard and Christopher Tye later also wrote masses based on this same song).
