The Tallis Scholars
William Byrd is an interesting figure, not least of which because he was a truly great composer, "the English Palestrina". He was also a faithful Catholic who, however, composed some of the most significant music ever written for Anglican liturgy, successfully managing to get through one of the bloodier monarchies in the history of the country which regularly saw Catholics and those suspected of any sort of association with a danger to the monarch tortured or killed. He even managed to work at the Royal Chapel for much of his life, even as his Catholicism became more committed. How he managed to do this in those complicated times is an indication that life is a lot more complicated than can be fit into a TV costume drama or even an historical novel.
