To mark the fortieth anniversary of The Tallis Scholars, travel company Martin Randall have created a three-day festival to take Tallis enthusiasts to locations in which the composer was known to have worked.
The tour will consist of five concerts: on the first day participants will attend a morning performance at Waltham Abbey in Essex and then travel to London’s St-Mary-at-Hill for an afternoon concert. The second day will take visitors to Canterbury where they will have a concert at Dover College and then an evening performance at Canterbury Cathedral. The festival will come to an end with a trip to Hampton Court Palace and a closing concert in the Royal Chapel.
Peter Phillips states on the Martin Randall Travel website: ‘It is with great pleasure that I present the Tallis Trail, a whistle-stop, action-packed mini-tour which is designed both to celebrate The Tallis Scholars’ fortieth anniversary and to revisit Tallis in some of the buildings he would have known.’
Places are limited to 70 – a few spaces are still available. Visit www.martinrandall.com or telephone 020 8742 3355 for more information.
