There are several leading up to the Tudor period...the best is Sunne in Splendor by Sharon Kay Penman (an excellent story of Richard III)
Legacy is another good read...as is The Queens Grace by Jan Westcott.
An author who seems little-known these days (but whose name crops up on other lists periodically), is Margaret Campbell Barnes. Her Brief, Gaudy Hour, about Anne Boleyn, and My Lady of Cleves, about Anne of Cleves, are two of my favorites. Norah Lofts has also written some excellent fiction about this era. I particularly liked her King's Pleasure, about Katherine of Aragon.
If you enjoy incredible descriptive writing, you will probably like Elizabeth Goudge. She is one of my favorite authors.
In LT, Three Cities of Bells is the "winning" title of the trilogy omnibus volume. It seems to have two titles (my old hardcover edition is Three Cities of Bells; my sister's newer paperback edition is The Cathedral Trilogy).
A friend tells me that Dean's Watch is Victorian, and the City of Bells is possibly Edwardian...but they got lumped together by the publisher because they're all cathedral stories.
