The Tallis Scholars
Peter Phillips director

The overarching theme of this concert is settings of the Lamentations, enabling Peter Phillips and the acclaimed Tallis Scholars vocal ensemble to programme two of the greatest Renaissance settings, by Thomas Tallis and Robert White.

It also provides a great opportunity to give the world premiere of a major new commission by Nico Muhly. Taking Britten’s War Requiem as his model, Muhly has interwoven the words of people who, for whatever reason, have found themselves in exile, with the words of the Israelites, who were equally driven into exile.

The remainder of the programme features music by William Byrd and Robert Fayrfax. This choice is in part preparation for the next Tallis Scholars’ recording, which will be dedicated to the music of Robert Fayrfax.

‘… as near extraterrestrial as you can get sitting in a concert hall…’ (The Observer on the Tallis Scholars)
