Quotes & Highlights
- Unlike his great contemporaries, Palestrina and Lassus, Tomás Luis de Victoria lived into the 17th century, only writing his greatest work — the six-voice Requiem — in 1605. By that time he had come to represent an entire school of composers, epitomising intensely spiritual Spanish expression.

Peter Philips, Director
L.A.’s former Roman Catholic cathedral, lovingly restored and experiencing a new life in the 21st century, offers a visually and acoustically stunning setting for the Tallis Scholars, “the rock stars of Renaissance vocal music” (The New York Times). In celebration of the 400th anniversary of the death of the great Spanish composer Tomás Luis de Victoria, the Tallis Scholars bring their unequalled artistry to a lavish program of the composer’s “greatest hits,” including his sublime Requiem.
The Tallis Scholars were founded in 1973 by their director, Peter Phillips. Through their recordings and concert performances, they have established themselves as the leading exponents of Renaissance sacred music throughout the world. Peter Phillips has worked with the ensemble to create, through good tuning and blend, the purity and clarity of sound which he feels best serve the Renaissance repertoire, allowing every detail of the musical lines to be heard. It is the resulting beauty of sound for which the Tallis Scholars have become so widely renowned.
