Concluding the 2013 anniversary series and in honor of the fortieth anniversary of the a cappella ensemble Pomerium, current and past members of the group will perform a concert featuring grand choral works from the court of Mary Tudor, Catholic Queen of England (1553–1558). The program of large-scale works by Christopher Tye, Robert White, Robert Parsons, and Thomas Tallis will conclude when forty vocalists line the walls of the Fuentidueña Chapel to perform the massive Spem in alium, scored for eight five-voice choirs. Long thought to be a work written for Queen Elizabeth I, Tallis's Spem in alium has recently been reassigned to the reign of her sister Mary, who commissioned sacred music of unprecedented grandeur and complexity to highlight England's short-lived return to Catholicism.
Listen to a sample of Pomerium.
