Tallis Scholars

Taverner to Tavener

Part of Spring-Summer 2023

This event has passed.

Angelic voices sing the extraordinarily beautiful music of two Johns.


Celebrating the incredible creative achievements of Sir John Tavener ten years after his death, the world renowned Tallis Scholars counterpoint some of Tavener’s best known music with the compositions of his Renaissance namesake John Taverner.

Dum transisset sabbatum I
As one who has slept
Funeral Ikos
In pace
Dum transisset sabbatum II
Song for Athene
The Lamb
Our father
Quaemadmodum
Gaude plurimum
