"The sound coming from the Tallis Scholars almost surpassed the humanly possible."—The Guardian, London
"One of the UK's greatest cultural exports" (BBC Radio 3), the Tallis Scholars return with a magnificent selection of Renaissance choral works composed for and inspired by the choir of the Vatican's Sistine Chapel. At the center of the program is a composite mass by Palestrina, the Missa Papae Marcelli, as well as Alexander Campkin's Miserere Mei for double choir, a new setting commissioned by the ensemble as a response to Gregorio Allegri's strikingly moving Miserere. The Tallis Scholars are no strangers to this refined repertoire: they were invited to perform in the Sistine Chapel to celebrate the final restoration of the Michelangelo frescoes in 1994.
