John Tallis, a composer of his time
Jack Morton Tallis was born in the golden era before the world was ripped apart by the horrors of the First World War; his music reflects the optimism of the much vaunted, if unfulfilled, Second Elizabethan Age.
He spent many years between the two world wars in London and Paris. John Tallis died in December 1996. His bequest established The Tallis Foundation charging it to maintain in perpetuity his house, Beleura, as a place of historic and educational interest. This CD features some of his piano compositions, music for piano and violin, and for soprano.
