Information

Thomas Tallis’ epic motet Spem in alium remains one of the most astonishing creations of the human mind. There is a theory that it was first performed in 1570, making 2020 the 450th anniversary of that event. True or not, one hardly needs a special reason for presenting Spem in alium.

Surrounding it with more music by Thomas Tallis gives us an opportunity to understand just how versatile he was. Big and small, Catholic and Protestant, he excelled in every genre, influencing all the English musicians of his time, and for generations to come.

‘… as near extraterrestrial as you can get sitting in a concert hall …’
