Notes & Reviews:

Thomas Tallis died in Greenwich in 1585 at about 80 years of age, of which more than half had been spent as a musician at the English Chapel Royal. During his time in royal service, no less than four different monarchs sat on the throne. Music was his means of expression - his real secret garden - and in this, he had no peer. Dominating 50 years of Tudor musical life, Tallis was capable of the most staggering feats of technical virtuosity as well as the simplest and most elegant means of expressing sadness and joy.
