Carl Rütti writes: It was Ian Moore who told me years ago that I should write a new 40-part motet to go with Talliss Spem in alium. I knew about Talliss 40-part motet but this work was just mentioned in the music history lectures to show the climax of vocal polyphony which one cant sing any more.
Nevertheless I heard Cambridge Voices perform this motet in Cambridge in 1994 and in Paris in 1996 and I wasnt dreaming! These performances inspired me for my 40-part motet.
Anne Page began her career as an organist in Perth, Western Australia, where she was born and educated. In 1979 she won a national music competition which enabled her to undertake advanced musical studies in Europe.
In 1988 she made her d & eacute;but at the Royal Festival Hall in London playing 20th-century masterworks, and since then regularly gives recitals and broadcasts in Britain, Europe, the USA, and Australia. She is now based in Cambridge, where she is also much sought-after as a teacher.
