The Tallis Scholars

Cal Performances

In the 16th cen, the retinues of King Henry VIII of England and King Francis I of France met on a field near Calais for a friendly show of mutual power, an extravagant display that included singing. Rival choirs squared off, with the French led by composer Jean Mouton and the English by William Cornysh. The Tallis Scholars pay tribute to this "sing-off" in a program of works by both composers, culminating in Cornysh's glorious Magnificat
