They have performed with Sting and Paul McCartney, given a memorable concert at the Sistine Chapel to celebrate the restoration of the Michelangelo’s frescoes, and shown how the absolute purity of their sound can turn the human voice into a privileged instrument to navigate through genres and time. Perfectly at ease in those spaces which, like Sant’Apollinare in Classe, aspire to the Absolute, the Tallis Scholars will propose a repertoire ranging from Arvo Pärt’s evocative contemporary sounds to such English classics like William Byrd, Thomas Tallis and John Taverner alongside the Italian school of Palestrina and Allegri. Well past their 40th anniversary, the Tallis Scholars are “as near extraterrestrial as you can get sitting in a concert hall” (The Observer).
