We invite you to the Cleveland Museum of Art to hear the Tallis Scholars, one of the world’s premier vocal ensembles and “one of the UK’s greatest cultural exports,” according to BBC Radio 3.
The Tallis Scholars were founded in 1973 by their director, Peter Phillips. Through their recordings and concert performances, they have established themselves as the leading exponents of Renaissance sacred music throughout the world. Phillips has worked with the ensemble to create, through good tuning and blend, the purity and clarity of sound that he feels best serve the Renaissance repertoire, allowing every detail of the musical lines to be heard. It is the resulting beauty of sound for which the Tallis Scholars have become so widely renowned.
For this performance, the Tallis Scholars perform their program “Masterpieces from Europe,” which provides a snapshot of the musical scene as it was in England and mainland Europe during the Renaissance by highlighting compositions by Josquin, Fayrfax, Gibbons, Lassus, Palestrina, and Victoria.
More info about The Tallis Scholars can be found on the ensemble’s website.
