Referred to on BBC Radio 3 as, ‘One of the UK’s greatest cultural exports’, The Tallis Scholars have performed in churches, cathedrals and venues in every continent on the planet except Antarctica!

Leading exponents of early sacred music for over 40 years, this superb a cappella ensemble, founded and conducted by Peter Phillips, continues to delight with their beautifully pure tone and exquisite harmonies.
