Tallis Scholars
Peter Phillips conductor

Peter Phillips directs the Tallis Scholars, as the group celebrates its 40th anniversary, in a Late Night Prom contrasting the music of John Taverner and of Carlo Gesualdo, who died 400 years ago. Taverner was the first organist and choirmaster of what is now Christ Church, Oxford, falling from favour a year after his master, Cardinal Wolsey, and into professional obscurity. Aristocrat and harmonic adventurer Carlo Gesualdo is best known for the boldness of his madrigals.
