Thomas Tallis

Thomas Tallis (c.1505-85)

Composer

Born into a devout Catholic family and loyal to the Roman Catholic church all his life, Tallis was forced to steer a careful course through the treacherous waters of the religious upheavals of Tudor England. The fact that he did not merely survive but indeed flourished under monarchs both Catholic and Protestant is testament to his musical skill, which even at the height of the sectarian conflict was acknowledged by all parties to transcend the partisan dispute.
