Conductor Peter Phillips and his legendary British singers, the Tallis Scholars, are coming to Houston for one night only, Saturday, April 25, for a concert hosted by Christ Church Cathedral as part of the Sanders Series.
Throughout more than 1750 concerts and across a catalog of award-winning recordings, 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. Phillips has worked with his 11-voice ensemble to create, through tuning and blend, the purity and clarity of sound which he feels best serves the Renaissance repertoire.
Their program for the April 25 concert will feature some of the most breathtaking and virtuosic vocal music of the 15th through 20th centuries, including pieces by Josquin de Pres, William Byrd, Nico Muhly, and Arvo Pärt.
Proceeds from concert ticket sales will benefit the Cathedral’s music ministry. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $20 or at the door for $25. (Students may purchase advance tickets for $10.) You can buy tickets online, in the cloister on April 12 and 19, or by phone at 713-590-3311. A reception will follow the performance in Reynolds Hall.
