The Tallis Scholars at 40, Gesualdo at 400 at Cadogan Hall

The Tallis Scholars  ©  Eric Richmond
Celebrating their 40th anniversary year, The Tallis Scholars presented a programme of Renaissance polyphony centred around another anniversary – that of Carlo Gesualdo, the 400th anniversary of whose death falls this year. The first half of the concert was a complete performance of Gesualdo’s masterpiece, the Tenebrae Responsories for Holy Saturday (1611).
