While renowned for their interpretation and performance of music from the Renaissance, The Tallis Scholars is equally praised for bringing fresh interpretations to music by contemporary composers, including Arvo Pärt.
We are just over two weeks away from hosting The Tallis Scholars in Calgary. We are pleased to offer you a VIP experience to meet its founder and director Peter Phillips following the show in Calgary!
Victoria isn't the only Spanish Renaissance composer represented on The Tallis Scholars' tour program. Alonso Lobo, a composer of the later Renaissance whom Victoria himself considered to be his 'equal', composed the motet Versa est in luctum in 1598, and will be performed when The Tallis Scholars visit Calgary on Tuesday 24 April at the Bella Concert Hall.
If you joined us for our most recent A Luminous New Year's Eve concert, the name Jean Mouton should remind you of his reputation as one of the foremost Renaissance composers from France. His Quis Dabit Oculis Nostris, a lament for the wife of King Louis XII of France, is a masterwork the Tallis Scholars will perform on its tour program.
You can't have a Renaissance concert without Palestrina, right? The Tallis Scholars will perform an excerpt from one of Palestrina's most recognizable works: the Missae Papae Marcelli.
