“From Tallis to Rutter”— the phrase describes the vast scope of the Great British Choral Tradition.

Thomas Tallis was an Elizabethan musical star in the 16th century, while five centuries later, in the same tradition, John Rutter writes some of the most imaginative choral music to be found anywhere today.

The motet 'Spem in Alium' is in forty, yes forty— parts, and moves through myriad combinations to form a stunning vocal kaleidoscope.

Composed in 1985 as a tribute to his father, Rutter’s smooth but modern 'Requiem' often
nods fondly towards some of the composer’s own musical “fathers”, including Fauré, Mahler, and Gershwin.

Separating Tallis from Rutter, Vaughan Williams appears through his ravishing instrumental work based on everyone’s favourite English folksong 'Greensleeves'.
