The Tallis Scholars, Renaissance illuminated Arvo Pärt
The Tallis Scholars have long since incorporated the music of Estonian composer Arvo Pärt (1935) into their programs of Renaissance polyphony.
And the mix works perfectly despite the centuries separating the works.
The Tallis Scholars bring an unblemished brilliance to this incandescent music. _ The Guardian
Peter Phillips created the Tallis Scholars in 1973. They have established themselves as the leading players in Renaissance sacred music around the world. Peter Phillips has forged the ensemble to a purity and a perfect sound clarity where every detail of the musical line is heard. It is thanks to this sonic purity that the Tallis Scholars have become so famous.
Arvo Pärt is perhaps today the most played contemporary composer in the world. Probably thanks to the soundtracks of many films.
