The Tallis Scholars
Peter Phillips director

Thomas Tallis’ epic motet Spem in alium remains one of the most astonishing creations of the human mind. There is a theory that the piece was first performed in 1570, making our planned performance date (which was due to take place in 2020) the 450th anniversary of its premiere. True or not, one hardly needs a special reason for presenting Spem in alium.

Surrounding it with more music by Thomas Tallis gives us an opportunity to understand just how versatile he was. Big and small, Catholic and Protestant, he excelled in every genre, influencing all the English musicians of his time, and for generations to come.
