It’s been called “a heavenly harmony”, but there’s only one real way to appreciate the kaleidoscopic beauty of Thomas Tallis’s 40-part motet Spem in alium, and that’s to hear it for yourself. 450 years since its creation, the Tallis Scholars join the superb young singers of the National Youth Chamber Choir for a programme that also includes Allegri’s Miserere: a sublime Saffron Hall debut for this world-famous vocal ensemble.
