The Tallis Scholars

Friday, May 1, 2020, 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

In the 16th century, the retinues of King Henry VIII of England and King Francis I of France met on a field near Calais for a friendly show of mutual power, an extravagant display of food, wine, wrestling, jousting, and of course, singing. Rival choirs squared off, with the French led by composer Jean Mouton and the English by William Cornysh. The Tallis Scholars pay tribute to this Renaissance “sing-off” in a program of works by both composers, culminating in Cornysh’s Magnificat.

Cost: $42–$76 (prices subject to change)
