Richard Pygott (c1485-1549) was the choirmaster in the household chapel of the cardinal Thomas Wolsey, founder of Christ Church College, Oxford. His mass setting on Veni sancte spiritus is a typically ornate English festal mass. John Mason (d1548) was a chaplain of the cardinal's chapel, and later acted as master of the choristers at Cardinal College (the original name of Christ Church College).
