Through almost 2000 concerts and 60 CDs, the tallis scholars have changed the status of renaissance polyphony for millions of musiclovers. In doing so they have raised the bar for the appreciation and technique of unaccompanied singing worldwide. From under graduates having fun, through the trials of confronting in grained prejudices towards unfamiliar repertoire, to their eventual reception as a cappella ‘rock stars’ (New York Times), what we really do tells the story of this peerless ensemble. Chapters describing what it is like to be constantly on the road are supplemented by appendices quoting from Phillips’s eyewitness Spectator articles, and a complete inventory of who has sung in the group. Peter Phillips has written a warts and all account – with a little help from his friends.
