【1885】 托马斯·塔利斯全集 Thomas Tallis The Complete Works 10CD FLAC 【沙洲海洋整理】
托马斯·塔利斯（英语： Thomas Tallis，1505年－1585年11月23日），英国文艺复兴时期著名作曲家。他为英国国教创作了最早的一批音乐作品，被誉为英国早期作曲家中最杰出者，与威廉·伯德齐名。作曲家沃恩·威廉斯曾以他的作品主题作过著名的《塔利斯主题幻想曲》。
The music of 16th Century English composer Thomas Tallis spans the reigns of four English monarchs and some 5 decades between the 1530's and 1570's, the entire surviving output of his musical works being represented on this 10CD box set.
All the works are performed by the 8 voice English `Chappelle Du Roi' directed by founder Alistair Dixon, recorded at various venues between 1996 and 2004. All information such as dates, venues, soloists are included on the card CD sleeves and although I would like to have seen a brief booklet with overview of the works, the CD ROM with 75 pages of comprehensive notes provides more than any enclosed booklet could offer.
The set offers a really unique chance to hear all of the composer's works in such a uniform interpretation - as far as I'm aware there has been no previous undertaking by anyone to perform and record all of Tallis's works onto a single volume, and indeed some of his compositions are heard here for the first time. The bringing to life of music which has lay unplayed for perhaps centuries is a huge achievement and suitable compliment to one of the finest composers of the Renaissance period.
Lovely performances, quality recordings nicely presented in compact (2cm thick) card box which is unmatched (I can't help wondering why the famous `Tallis Scholars' haven't done this) in terms of value and quality
