If you ever needed proof that the human voice is the most beautiful and varied instrument there is, then look no further than this album.

Justice to Tallis

If there ever were an album that could transport one into the age of Henry VIII, Archbishop Cranmer or Thomas Cromwell, this is it! Peter Phillips' painstaking study of 16th century music makes for a truly authentic sound. Well done Tallis Scholars!

Spem in Alium-Music to Transport the Soul-

Twenty five years ago my family sent me the gift of a cassette recording of Spem in Alium along with other works of the Renaissance. I began by listening to Spem in Alium with earphones it was as if I had left the temporal world behind finding my soul and spirit being transported into eternity. Slowly at first with a treble initiating the augmentation of voices. It was like the first shaft of light breaking the darkness. The sound continues to grow surrounding the listener with eight five part choirs, which is a foretaste of Heaven. This music made such profound effect on me that I set out to find the best recording available, which according to my research and ears was the Tallis Scholars. All of the music of Thomas Tallis is awesome, and the Tallis Scholars both artistically and technically breath life into the work where you can hear the multiple choirs surrounding you better than any other recording I've heard.
