Visual tintinnabulation

March 5, 2015

The Tallis Scholars, in a rare foray outside of their usual Renaissance repertoire, have just issued a disc of Arvo Pärt’s music. Here is the group’s long-time leader, Peter Phillips, describing some of it. The video has a nice way of visualizing the music by showing which singers are singing at any one time. It’s entrancing.

    Thanks, Craig. This was great and I see that they are going to be pretty close, and the tickets are very reasonable. I may have to check into this.

    Oh, you should! They are a wonderful group — they’ve been around forever, and have mentored a lot of very fine singers through their ranks. I heard them in concert once, some years ago, in a gigantic (too large) hall, and I’d like to see them again in a more intimate space. They are coming to Toronto next winter, but I don’t know what they will be singing; if it’s this Arvo Part programme I think I will have to go.
