On the conclusion of the making of the Tallis Series, the director and co-founder of Signum Classics, Alistair Dixon, writes about the life and works of Thomas Tallis and describes how the project came about
Following the death of Thomas Tallis in 1585 William Byrd wrote in his consort song Ye sacred muses "Tallis is dead, and music dies". Tallis's claim to the 'crown' of English music is underpinned by the quantity of music he left, his lasting influence on English musical composition, his un-paralleled versatility in style of composition and the irresistible and emotional 'pulling' power of his music.Tallis was appointed a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal in about 1542 where he served for the next forty years under four monarchs and four political regimes: those of Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary and Elizabeth I. He was a supreme craftsman, and unlike some of his contemporaries, his politics were that of adaptation and service to the prevailing political regime. This contrasts with his elder contemporary John Taverner who ran into difficulties in Oxford because of his reformatory tendencies, and the younger William Byrd who was so fiercely counter-reformatory in the later years of the century.
Tallis stuck the course and continued writing; his corpus of music, viewed end to end, holds up a mirror to the political changes of Tallis's lifetime in the sixteenth century.



The Tallis Series
In 1994 the vocal ensemble Chapelle du Roi gave its first concert; the group's chosen name reflected the writer's interest in Franco-Flemish music. However, the power of Tallis' music, particularly as expressed through the two recordings by Andrew Parrot and the Taverner Consort, proved irresistible. In 1995 Chapelle du Roi gave a series of six concerts surveying Tallis's complete oeuvre and this then led to the plans for a nine-CD series of recordings.
Devising a series of nine discs from such a breadth of music and style proved to be a fascinating project. Usually when planning the repertoire for a CD the artist or producer has the freedom to choose a theme and select music to create a balanced programme designed to stimulate and keep the listeners' interest. Here the challenge was the discipline of dividing over ten hours of music into nine self-contained programmes. By following a broadly chronological theme the repertoire divided itself up very obligingly.
