5.0 out of 5 stars Number 1 in the Official UK Classical Specialist Chart, 12 Nov 2013
Released to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of The Tallis Scholars on 3 November 2013 this album has gone straight to number 1 in the UK Specialist Classical Chart and is the highest non-crossover album in the Classical Artists Chart.

Reviewing the album on BBC Radio 3 CD Review Andrew McGregor said "it's a thrilling sound ... you can see why Peter Phillips choose the Taverner, it's a great display piece for the ensemble ... in this Taverner Mass and the 3 Magnificat settings The Tallis Scholars are unsurpassed".

Paul Driver in The Sunday Times described the "impeccable purity of sound, with ecstatic results" and Robert Levett in International Review Review said "it's quite simply stunning".

Better to buy The Tallis Scholars sing Thomas Tallis - a brilliant 2CD set at a lower price
The Tallis Scholars sing Thomas Tallis

This album includes "Spem in alium" the single that is #1 in the UK Classical Singles Chart thanks to the controversial literary sensation "50 Shades of Grey" by E L James who said "I am delighted to have introduced so many of my readers to this amazing 16th century piece of music, it is absolutely wonderful and the recording from the Tallis Scholars is particularly special.
