Tallis Scholars – The Golden Age of Spanish Polyphony
featuring Tomás Luis de Victoria's Requiem (a 6)

With over four decades of performance and a catalogue of award-winning recordings for Gimell, Peter Phillips and The Tallis Scholars have done more than any other group to establish sacred vocal music of the Renaissance as one of the great repertoires of Western classical music.

They have sought to bring Renaissance works to a wider audience in churches, cathedrals and venues on every continent on the planet except Antarctica! These include the Royal Albert Hall, the Sistine Chapel, the Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall New York, the Philharmonic Hall Berlin, Saint Mark's Venice, Seoul Arts Centre Korea, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre London, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Wigmore Hall, Beijing Concert Hall, Megaron Athens, and the Opera House Sydney. Presented by Cappella Romana, they return to Seattle and St. James Cathedral to sing Tomás Luis de Victoria's Requiem and other works by Victoria and contemporaneous Renaissance Spanish composers Francisco Guerrero, Juan Vásquez, and Alonso Lobo.

The concert runs approximately one hour and 40 minutes, which includes a 20-minute intermission.

Tickets are $40–$80 and are available through the Cappella Romana website or 503-256-8202. A limited number of pay-what-you-can parishioner passes are available at the Cathedral Parish Office reception desk or through the Cathedral music office: or 206-382-4874.
