On the 7th March The Tallis Scholars kicked off their 40th anniversary world tour with a stunning concert held at St Paul’s Cathedral, London. The much anticipated concert showcased some of the groups favourite pieces from their 40 years of performing, including Thomas Tallis’ Spem in Alium and Allegri’s Miserere.
The concert also included two world premieres - Eric Whitacre’s Sainte-Chapelle and Gabriel Jackson’s Ave dei patris filia, both written specially for the anniversary. Find details of the world tour here.
