According to The New Penguin Dictionary of Music
, John Taverner was an English composer, also pianist and organist: wrote chiefly church music in Latin, including 8 masses - one based on the then popular song, "The Western Wind". His Mass "Gloria tibi trinitas" was the starting point of the In Nomines for strings and a few other works. Imprisoned for (Protestant) heresy, afterwards apparently abandoning music and becoming an active agent in the political suppression of monasteries.
