50 Greatest Recordings of All Time
20 December 2011
The Tallis Scholars recording of Allegri's Miserere, made in Merton College Chapel in 1980, has been chosen as one of the "50 Greatest Recordings of All Time" by BBC Music Magazine. The January 2012 issue says:
"The 1980 recording that not only made the Tallis Scholars a household name, but effectively led the way to today's great wave of exceptional mixed-voice choirs. Alison Stamp is faultless in the exceptionally testing soprano solo - top Cs and all - while, with the choir and solo quartet placed some distance apart, the perfect acoustic of Merton College Chapel is captured to perfection by Gimell."
