Product Description & Reviews

Although most of these works have been recorded many times, this program offers a unique opportunity to hear, side by side, the diversity of Tallis's compositions for both the Anglican and Catholic service. Tallis served under four monarchs during his long career, and the music he wrote depended on the sympathies of the current ruler: Protestant (Henry and Edward), Catholic (Mary Tudor), and Protestant, though somewhat tolerant of Latin-texted music (Elizabeth I). Here are many of Tallis's most renowned-- and a few previously unrecorded--works, reflecting the different styles and demands of the more modest English language services versus the long-established and more elaborate music of the Catholic liturgy. Tallis's creative powers enabled him to write music that was efficacious and exceptionally beautiful no matter what the circumstances or limitations. The Theatre of Voices and The King's Noyse, who perform some rarely heard instrumental works, give us exemplary performances enhanced by an agreeably resonant acoustic. --David Vernier
