The English Reformation is the transition of the Church of England from the Latin Sarum Rite to a new reformed liturgy in English. The dissolution and destruction of the monasteries, abbeys, priories, etc. with their musical libraries and programs under Henry VIII. The Book of Common Prayer (1549) and the use of the vernacular under Edward VI , and the attempt to re-establishment a Roman liturgy under Queen Mary I. A new catholic and reformed English church under Queen Elizabeth, and the rise of puritanism, and the Marian Exiles. The rise of the new secular vocal, and  instrumental music. The older Renaissance  sacred Latin forms  began to slowly disappear  for the new Reformed Church of England. .Some of the  more prominent composers of the period included: Mundy, Parsons, Sheppard, Tallis, Tye, Whyte.
