The Tallis Scholars: Spem in alium Project
Church of St. Ignatius Loyola
Magnificently constructed, richly sonorous, and breathlessly beautiful, Tallis’s 40-voice motet “Spem in alium” is one of the towering masterpieces of Renaissance sacred vocal music. Thirty young choral singers will be coached by and perform with Peter Phillips and The Tallis Scholars, the preeminent a cappella vocal ensemble, in this concert that also features Brumel’s Missa Et ecce terrae motus and Victoria’s Missa Salve regina, as well as motets by Gibbons, Sheppard, Weelkes, and Cowper.
