Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Thomas Tallis served four English monarchs during his long life. A Catholic, he survived the tumultuous religious and political upheavals and persecutions of Edward VI and Mary I. He adapted to the demands of the new reformed church, the Church of England under Henry VIII, self appointed 'Defender of the Faith'. Under Elizabeth I a more tolerant approach to religion emerged -- even the ever-present threat of invasion by Catholic Spain did not deter the Queen from allowing her subjects freedom of worship and expression. A superb collection of Tallis's music for the court, including the 40-part motet Spem in alium, one of the greatest works of the period Recording made in 2000 for Signum Records 'The choir has ordered its dynamics with skill, ending on a fervent note of imploration.' - Gramophone, 2003.
