Byrdland or 'Nobody wants a flowery organ voluntary'

Nicholas goes to St Paul's Cathedral to talk to master of the choristers Andrew Carwood and Byrd scholar Dr Katie Bank (of Byrd Central) about their passion for William Byrd's music. Is Peter Phillips right? Do audiences like Tallis while singers prefer Byrd?
