Tallis Scholars

Presented by Cal Performances

Celebrating 50 years this season, the Tallis Scholars return to Berkeley with a holiday program that views the Christmas story from the perspective of the shepherds who came to worship at the manger. The concert revolves around Who did you see, Shepherds?, a mass by Flemish composer Clemens non Papa, its five movements dispersed between similar text settings by other masters from the late Renaissance. Also on the program is a double choir motet by Giovanni Croce, and two settings of the Salve regina by Obrecht and Philips. The Tallis Scholars recently won both the BBC Music Magazine’s Recording of the Year Award and the Gramophone Early Music Award.
