  1. thomas tallis

    Thomas Tallis (c. 1505–1585) was an influential English composer of sacred music during the Renaissance period. Known for his complex choral polyphony, Tallis served as an organist and composed for four Tudor monarchs. His works ranged from settings of liturgical texts to anthems and motets, as well as instrumental organ music. He is particularly remembered for pieces such as "Spem in alium", a motet written for 40 voices, and his collaborative work with his student, William Byrd, in the compilation "Cantiones Sacrae". His compositions have had a lasting impact on British classical music.

  1. Thomas Tallis

    Thomas Tallis was an English composer who occupies a primary place in anthologies of English church music, and is considered one of England's greatest early composers. He is honoured for his original voice in English musicianship. No contemporary portrait of Tallis survives: the earliest, painted by Gerard van der Gucht, dates from 150 years after Tallis died, and there is no certainty that it is a likeness. In a rare copy of his signature that exists [in block letters], the composer spelled his last name "Tallys."

Examples of thomas tallis in a Sentence

  1. Terry Pratchett:

    I have vowed that rather than let Alzheimer's take me, I would take it, i would live my life as ever to the full and die, before the disease mounted its last attack, in my own home, in a chair on the lawn, with a brandy in my hand to wash down whatever modern version of the Brompton Cocktail some helpful medic could supply. And with Thomas Tallis on my iPod, I would shake hands with death.

  2. Terry Pratchett:

    I would like to die peacefully with Thomas Tallis on my iPod before the disease takes me over and I hope that will not be for quite some time to come, because if I knew that I could die at any time I wanted, then suddenly every day would be as precious as a million pounds, if I knew that I could die, I would live. My life, my death, my choice.

  3. Sarah Wootton:

    I would live my life as ever to the full and die, before the disease mounted its last attack, in my own home, in a chair on the lawn, with a brandy in my hand to wash down whatever modern version of the Brompton Cocktail some helpful medic could supply. And with Thomas Tallis on my iPod, I would shake hands with death. sir Terry was fond of saying, 'It's time we learned to be as good at dying as we are at living' and his brave approach to confronting issues of death, including his own, was a heartfelt demonstration of dignity.
