The Tallis Scholars

Weill Recital Hall
Touchstones of Franco-Flemish and English Renaissance sacred music are heard on this concert. Renowned throughout Renaissance Europe, Josquin des Prez’s fame grew so much that eventually he was simply referred to by his first name. Josquin’s Missa Pange lingua, one of his last Mass settings, was built upon a chant melody that evolves into richly sonorous sound. Byrd’s brilliant Latin motets display his tremendous inventiveness and superb gift for setting text.

Part of Salon Encores.
