“The ensemble has set a standard so high that a greater level of musical perfection is simply not conceivable.”—Bachtrack
Peter Phillips, director
The Tallis Scholars remain some of the leading exponents of Renaissance sacred music in the world today. The British choral ensemble has created a purity and clarity of sound that best serves the early music repertoire and allows every detail of the musical lines to not only be heard but savored. The resulting beauty has become the group’s trademark. The ensemble visits Athens during the holiday season with a program of 16th century music examining the Christmas story from the viewpoint of the shepherds who came to worship at the manger.
Join us for a free pre-performance Q&A with Peter Philips and Sarah Frook Gallo, Interim Associate Director of Choral Activities in the Hugh Hodgson School of Music, in Ramsey Concert Hall from 6:15-6:45 pm.
