The Tallis Scholars

Biography

The Tallis Scholars were founded in 1973 by their director, Peter Phillips. Through their recordings and concert performances, they have established themselves as the leading exponents of Renaissance sacred music throughout the world. Peter Phillips has worked with the ensemble to create the purity and clarity of sound which he feels best serve the Renaissance repertoire. It is the resulting beauty of sound for which The Tallis Scholars have become so widely renowned.

The Tallis Scholars perform in both sacred and secular venues, usually giving around 70 concerts each year across the globe. In 2013 the group celebrated their 40th anniversary with a World Tour performing 99 events in 80 venues in 16 countries and travelling sufficient air-miles to circumnavigate the globe four times. On 21st September 2015 the group gave their 2000th concert at St John’s Smith Square in London. Highlights in the 2018/19 season so far have included performances in Bremen and Utrecht Festivals and a world premiere of a new Nico Muhly piece at Miller Theatre, NY. Upcoming highlights include Ravenna Festival and Berlin Barocktage, Salzburg Festival, and tours of Japan, in addition to their usual touring schedule around the USA, Europe and the UK. A recent highlight was a tour of Brazil. Recordings by The Tallis Scholars have attracted many awards throughout the world. The latest recording of Josquin masses, “Missa Gaudeamus” and “Missa L’ami Baudichon”, was released in November 2018. This is the 7th of 9 albums in The Tallis Scholars' project to record all of Josquin's masses before the composer's 500th Anniversary in 2021.
