First of five programmes of music by Tallis.
Although Thomas Tallis (c. 1505-1585) is universally recognised as one of the greatest and most influential of Tudor composers, his works have suffered an undeserved neglect by reason of their comparative difficulty of access. Most of his music for the Sarum rite was composed at Waltham and at Canterbury, but on his subsequent appointment to the Chapel Royal (where he remained for forty years) he was constantly employed in writing music for the Reformed Church. This series of five programmes, designed to show many aspects of Tallis' remarkable musical genius, will include music for organ, harpsichord, strings, and voices.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
