Thomas Tallis is a portrait of one of England’s most successful composers, set against the tumultuous political backdrop of the renaissance. Living under four monarchs, Tallis was forced to adapt his compositions to suit their religious demands, but at what cost? In Swale’s vividly imagined play, we follow the interwoven fates of Tallis and other citizens of England at the time. Performed by candlelight in the historic Calvary Baptist Church sanctuary in Uptown, the story is underscored by a live choir singing the works of Tallis throughout.
