Tallis Scholars: The Essential Tallis Scholars
EAC (APE & CUE) | Classical | 1 CD / 238 MB

The Tallis Scholars were founded in 1973 by their director, Peter Phillips. Through their recordings and concert performances, they have established themselves as leading exponents of Renaissance sacred music. Their exploration of the depth and variety of this repertoire has reached a world-wide audience. Peter Phillips has worked with the ensemble to create, through good tuning and blend, the purity and clarity of sound which he feels best serves the Renaissance repertoire, allowing every detail of the musical lines to be heard. It is the resulting beauty of sound for which the Tallis Scholars have become renowned.

The Tallis Scholars perform in both sacred and secular venues, giving around 80 concerts each year. They tour at least twice a year in the USA where they have been described as "a capella superstars", and give substantial tours in the Far East every eighteen months. In April 1994 The Tallis Scholars enjoyed the privilege of performing in the Sistine Chapel to mark the final stage of the complete restoration of the Michaelangelo frescoes. The group has given four major tours of Australia, singing in the Sydney Opera House and throughout the country. 1998 saw them in Italy (in Ferrara, at the invitation of Claudio Abbado) and in London for a unique 25th Anniversary concert in London's National Gallery premiering a John Tavener work written for the group and narrated by Sting. The guest speaker at this event was David Attenborough. In New York on 5th Dec 1998 the group gave their 1000th concert. 2000/2001 will see them perform in Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, France, Bermuda, USA, Australia, Singapore and China, as well as many major UK venues, including Symphony Hall, Bridgewater Hall, Wigmore Hall and London's South Bank Centre.

Much of The Tallis Scholars' reputation for their pioneering work has come from their association with Gimell Records, set up by Peter Phillips and Steve Smith in 1981 solely to record them. As a result of the partnership formed with Polygram in 1996, Gimell is able to bring to an even wider public not only recordings of works by established composers such as Byrd, Tallis, Palestrina and Victoria, but also music by lesser-known composers such as Clemens non Papa, Frei Manuel Cardoso and Heinrich Isaac. In February 1994 Peter Phillips and the Tallis Scholars performed on the 400th anniversary of the death of Palestrina in the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, Rome, where Palestrina had trained as a choirboy and later worked as Maestro di Cappella.

As I'm introducing new methods to not only provide longer shelf-life for my files but to give password-free access to everyone, there's going to be some rough patches in the process. Hence, if you encounter a problem while downloading the files or just simply can't find your way around, I'm willing to help. Either send me a PM or write a brief reply in the comment section below. It's also worth noting that all my files come with all the available mirrors that FTP2Share provides. I hope this is enough to dispel any notion that I am interested in collecting points. Moreover, NEVER EVER post any links in the open. This should not be taken lightly. As much as I love avant-garde music and equally enjoy sharing with you, I will not tolerate anyone who brazenly disregard this simple request and will cease all publications immediately without further notice. You have been warned.
