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.”
