Peter Phillips, director

Works by Josquin, Guerrero, Pärt, Mouton, Lobo, Tavener, Palestrina, Victoria

Exemplars of Renaissance polyphony the world over, the magnificent Tallis Scholars present War and Peace, a collection of 16th- and 17th-century works united by shared themes of conflict and consolation. To commemorate the fallen of the First World War, which concluded 100 years ago, artistic director Peter Phillips has compiled a complete mass from diverse and relevant musical sources, from the Kyrie of Josquin's famous Missa L'homme armé, to the Gloria of Guerrero's Missa de la batalla, the peaceful strains of Victoria's superb six-voice Missa pro defunctis, and moving funeral motets by Tavener, Mouton, and Lobo.
