Tallis Scholars: Darkness to Light

19 Apr 24, 7:30 PM

St. James Cathedral

804 9th Ave, Seattle, WA 98104

The Tallis Scholars return to our series with a program spanning Lent and Easter, especially poignant this year as their tour takes place between the dates of Easter, March 31 on the Gregorian calendar and May 5 on the Julian. Two expansive settings of the Lamentations (White and Tallis) fill the first half with the second focusing on the events of the Passion and the Resurrection. They will sing the complete cycle of William Byrd’s propers for Easter Day, in which the earthquake at Christ’s crucifixion is depicted musically at “Terra tremuit.”
