Tallis was a man of outstanding integrity who weathered the religious storms of the Reformation with his reputation intact. He had become a fatherfigure to the church musicians of his times and to them his death must have seemed like the ending of an age. Donald Macleod ends this week's survey of Tallis's music with a look at his output of secular music, his only surviving keyboard works and -the work by which he is best known today- his extraordinary 40-part motet, SpeminAlium.
