The Tallis Scholars

  • First Congregational Church 2345 Channing Way Berkeley, CA, 94704 United States (map)

Music Inspired by the Sistine Chapel
"One of the UK's greatest cultural exports" (BBC Radio 3), the Tallis Scholars return with a magnificent selection of Renaissance choral works composed for and inspired by the choir of the Vatican's Sistine Chapel. At the center of the program is a composite mass by Palestrina, the Missa Papae Marcelli, as well as Alexander Campkin's Miserere Mei for double choir, a new setting commissioned by the ensemble as a response to Gregorio Allegri's strikingly moving Miserere. The Tallis Scholars are no strangers to this refined repertoire: they were invited to perform in the Sistine Chapel to celebrate the final restoration of the Michelangelo frescoes in 1994.
