Thomas Tallis & The English Reformation
Thomas Tallis served under four Tudor monarchs, from Henry VIII to Elizabeth I, and was at the height of his career when the English Reformation hit. David Skinner – Fellow and Osborn Director of Music at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, and Artistic Director of Alamire – explores how composers adapted to fluctuating liturgical requirements under successive reigning monarchs. He also discusses the recent discovery of Tallis’s collaboration with Queen Catherine Parr, which features in Alamire’s evening concert.
