Early renaissance English music was renowned throughout Europe for its special sound - the "English countenance." John Dunstaple led the way with this new style, which reached its apex in the religious music of Thomas Tallis and William Byrd, written in the turbulent early years of the protestant Church of England. In the late renaissance, the flow of influence reversed as Italian styles became enormously popular in England, as heard in the delightful madrigals of composers like John Wilbye.
