2013 was the busiest year yet for The Tallis Scholars. During their 40th Anniversary World Tour they sang at 99 events in 80 different venues in 16 countries, 14 of which were broadcast on radio. They stayed in 57 hotels, took 25 train journeys and covered 105,727 air-miles during 68 flights. The Tallis Scholars Facebook page shows photos of most of the venues they visited during 2013.

“…The sound coming from the Tallis Scholars almost surpassed the humanly possible…”
Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph, August 2013
