RVW’s Tallis Fantasia – Unknowable Mysteries

This is one of my favorite pieces of music. Just a perfect, perfect creation.

As a commenter notes, “If you have iTunes, get the version performed by the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, conducted by Sir Neville Marriner. It comes with “The Lark Ascending,” “Fantasia on Greensleeves” and “Five Variants of ‘Dives and Lazarus.'” It’s $9.99 and it’s absolutely gorgeous. “

It truly is the best version I’ve found and the entire CD is like the score for a dream of heaven.

  1. Oh! I am so pleased to introduce it to you!! It is a sort of mental score for me. I cannot tell you how evocative it is…sigh…DO get the noted CD. So divine.I can still remember getting the CD from the Atlanta Public Library. I think that there was a mention of it long ago on the Bernstein Concerts for Children show. I recalled it and there it was in all its glory.I have a personal belief that he was gifted with it by the fey. Simply too lovely to be a human composition. LOLTHX!!
