“one of the the UK’s greatest cultural exports” – BBC Radio 3

Over four decades of performance and a catalogue of award-winning recordings, Peter Phillips and The Tallis Scholars have done more than any other group to establish sacred vocal music of the Renaissance as one of the great repertoires of Western classical music.

This program features vocal music of Spanish Renaissance composers Francisco Guerrero, Juan Vasquez, Alonso Lobo, and Tomás Luis de Victoria, who ranks with Palestrina and Orlando di Lasso among the greatest composers of the 16th century.

The Tallis Scholars have sought to bring Renaissance works to a wider audience in churches, cathedrals, and venues on every continent on the planet except Antarctica. These include the Royal Albert Hall, the Sistine Chapel, Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall in New York, Philharmonic Hall in Berlin, Saint Mark’s in Venice, Seoul Arts Centre in Korea, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Wigmore Hall, Beijing Concert Hall, Megaron in Athens, and the Sydney Opera House.
