After their last sold-out performance in 2015, The Tallis Scholars return to fill the Terrace Theater once again with richly textured vocal music from the Renaissance—this time in a delightfully festive concert for the holidays. Inspired by the legacy of English composer Thomas Tallis, from whom the ensemble takes its name, and helmed by director Peter Phillips, the Scholars have truly “set the standard for the performance of Renaissance polyphony” (The Washington Post).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A Note from Joseph "Yossi" Kalichstein, Artistic Director of Fortas
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
One of the down sides of the popularity of opera and instrumental music is that we often forget and neglect one of the richest, most creative, and most emotional times in the history of Western music: the Renaissance. It consists mainly of vocal music but of infinite variety, imagination, and inspiration. The Tallis Scholars brighten our holiday season with a panoramic pan-European journey across the 16th century, plus a new work by young New Englander Nico Muhly.
