Woven throughout the Psalms are pleas to shift the earthly balance between those in power and the powerless. In this concluding concert, the Tallis Scholars explore settings by Handel, Gabrieli, and others. All the themes of The Psalms Experience then culminate in the Renaissance splendor of Thomas Tallis’s Spem in alium, with members of all four choirs joining forces to offer up an ecstatic expression of praise.
“Incline not my heart to an evil word– from Psalm 141:4 (translation by Robert Alter)
to plot wicked acts
with wrongdoing men,
and let me not feast on their delicacies.”
