Since their founding over forty years ago, The Tallis Scholars have become the gold standard for Renaissance sacred music. Led by director and founder Peter Phillips, the revered a cappella group performs a concert of exquisite Renaissance and contemporary music. “Their immaculate intonation and accuracy were a given; their full, pure, clear sound, big enough to fill the hall, distinguished their performance” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette).

Peter Phillips director

The Tallis Scholars grew out of founder Peter Phillips' love of a cappella music: “I’ve always loved the sound of unaccompanied voices,” he said. “Then I got familiar with Renaissance style and I got to love that, too." Read more at CSO Sounds & Stories >
