Artist Portrait

Thomas Tallis

1505-1585 GB, Kent
Composer of Classical

Thomas Tallis (c. 1505 – 23 November 1585 by the Julian calendar still then in use in England) was an English composer who occupies a primary place in anthologies of English choral music, and is considered one of England's greatest composers. He is honoured for his original voice in English musicianship. No contemporary portrait of Tallis survives: that painted by Gerard Vandergucht (illustration), dates from 150 years after Tallis died, and there is no reason to suppose that it is a likeness. In a rare existing copy of his black letter signature, the composer spelled his last name "Tallys."
