Notes & Reviews:
The Tallis Scholars and Gimell Records have so far recorded fifty-six albums. This collection, hand picked by Peter Phillips, features select benchmark recordings from their impressive discography. Some of these works are masterpieces in their own right and some have become recognized as such through these performances. Included here is Palestrina's Missa Papae Marcelli, which The Tallis Scholars have performed over 140 times in concert, Victoria's Versa est in luctum, Gesualdo's Ave, dulcissima Maria, Mouton's exquisite Salva nos, Domine and more. This personal playlist demonstrates Phillips's ever growing love of renaissance polyphony.
