Few, if any, composers of the sixteenth century can boast such a variety of musical styles and genres as Thomas Tallis.
His diverse yet strikingly individual voice was a product of an outstanding musical imagination combined with the extraordinary historical context in which he lived. His working life spanned the reign of four monarchs, each preferring a drastically different flavour of Christian worship from his or her predecessor.
The Rodolfus Choir, well-known for its imaginative programmes and for its presentation of new, often specially-commissioned music, always makes a strong impact in performance, due partly to the immense vitality, precision, musicianship, and commitment of the singing, and partly to the inspirational qualities of its founder-director, Ralph Allwood.
