The Tallis Scholars open the 2019–20 Choral at Cadogan series with a performance of rarely heard Palestrina. The music in this programme is written for an unusual mix of voices, and Choral at Cadogan offers the perfect showcase for such extraordinary choral writing.
Peter Phillips, director of The Tallis Scholars says: ‘The Missa Ave Maria is one of Palestrina’s greatest works, yet it remains almost completely unknown. Its final Agnus for eight-part choir is a particularly special feature.’
Don’t miss the chance to hear this stunning music alongside works by Gallus, Byrd and de Morales.
