Following their triumphant appearance in 2013, this October The Tallis Scholars return to perform a sublime program of Renaissance masters alongside works from the world’s greatest living composers of sacred choral music.

For over 40 years, British early music vocal ensemble The Tallis Scholars have established themselves as the world’s leading exponents of Renaissance sacred music, creating a sound of astonishing beauty and blend.

Led by director Peter Phillips, the program will feature the music of Tallis through to Arvo Pärt, the most performed living composer in the world, and conclude with the largest and grandest work of all – the 40-part Spem in alium, with The Tallis Scholars joined by members of the QPAC Choir.

Don’t miss these "rock stars of Renaissance vocal music" when they return to QPAC for one night only.
