In he returned to London to take up his post as a gentleman of the Chapel Royal, where he shared the duties of organist with Tallis.
The close personal and professional relationship between the two men had important musical consequences. In Elizabeth I granted them a joint monopoly for the importing, printingpublishingand sale of music and the printing of music paper. The first work under their imprint appeared in that year—a collection of Cantiones sacrae dedicated to the queen; of the 34 motetsTallis contributed 16 and Byrd In Byrd and his family moved to Harlington, Middlesex.

One further publication came from Byrd, the Psalmes, Songs and Sonnets ofcontaining English sacred and secular music.
He wrote extensively for every medium then available except, it seems, the lute. His virginal and organ music brought the English keyboard style to new heights and pointed the way to the achievements of other English composers, such as John BullGiles FarnabyOrlando Gibbonsand Thomas Tomkins.

Byrd sometimes added texts to the polyphonic accompaniments of these songs, in effect making them madrigals. Although this is of generally high quality, it cannot be denied that Byrd maintained his highest consistent level in his Latin sacred music. Of this, the and sets of Cantiones sacrae mostly designed for the private edification of the Catholic circles Byrd moved in and therefore unrestricted by liturgical considerations have an intensity unrivalled in England and a breadth of scale unknown on the Continent.
