The Tallis Scholars and Peter Phillips performed John Tavener’s Lord’s Prayer as an encore.

Capturing the timeless transcendence of the human voice, the Tallis Scholars highlight the hallowed works of John Taverner, who served as choirmaster of Christ Church, Oxford, during the reign of Henry VIII. The a cappella ensemble moves gracefully through the ages, incorporating contemporary work by Arvo Pärt and a Lincoln Center commission by New York composer Nico Muhly.

Recordare, Domine is commissioned by the Tallis Scholars, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, and Lafayette College.
