Faces of 11 Tallis Scholar musicians, arranged in a rectangle around the words "The Tallis Scholars"

M@A Chamber Series: The Tallis Scholars

The program commemorates the 500th year of Isaac’s death:
Josquin: Gaude virgo
Josquin: Stabat mater
Josquin: Absalom fili mi
Gombert: Lugebat Absalom
Isaac: Optime divino
Interval
Browne: Stabat juxta
Isaac: Tota pulchra es
Josquin: Inter natos mulierum
Gombert: Regina caeli

Over four decades of performance and a catalogue of award-winning recordings for Gimell, Peter Phillips and the Tallis Scholars have done more than any other group to establish sacred vocal music of the Renaissance as one of the great repertoires of Western classical music. Reviewers praise their sound for its supple clarity and tone, and Tallis harnesses it to bring fresh interpretations to music by contemporary as well as past composers.

“The Tallis Scholars vocal ensemble seems to have a direct line to heaven—inspiring reverence for the power of the human vocal chords to echo spiritual realms.”
—Australian Stage

Dinner with Amherst College Humanists!

Please join the Amherst College Humanists for an evening of food and conversation. Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without a commitment to theism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity and the rest of our planet.
