A Thom Tallis Fancy
By Anthony St. Pierre June 2006
A T or Sn T
A review appears in the Spring 2015 issue of the AR (p. 39).

In the first of the three sections, the alto takes the Tallis tune, which most audiences know from the famous Vaughan Williams Fantasy on a Theme by Thomas Tallis. The tenor presents the tune in the middle section. In the final section, the alto takes up the sopranino (optionally) and the two voices deliver the tune imitatively.

Players of intermediate ability will encounter few technical difficulties in this piece. Duration: 3:40 Performed by Anthony St. Pierre, alto, sopranino; Scott Paterson, tenor.
