Tallis Scholars In Concert. Edmonton, Alberta, Canada | Robertson-Wesley United Church | Monday, 23. April 2018

For over 40 years, Britain’s early music vocal ensemble The Tallis Scholars has established itself as the leading proponent of Renaissance sacred music throughout the world. Its worldwide tours and extensive recordings have earned several accolades, including Gramophone Magazine’s Record of the Year, several Grammy Award nominations, and admission into Gramophone’s Hall of Fame.

The Tallis Scholars perform War and Peace, commemorating all those who lost their lives in the First World War, 1914–1918. Following the framework of a Mass, the program features music from compositions by Josquin, Guerrero, Pärt, Mouton, Lobo, Victoria, Tavener, and Palestrina.
