I am pleased to announce the creation of a Tallis Scholars facebook page for supporters the world over. Although it is very young, this page already includes news about our records, concert programmes and Summer Courses (TSSS). You will probably know better than me how to sign on to it, but www.facebook.com seems to be a good start. And then you can try to guess the identity of Thomas Tallis himself, who has joined as a fan. I hold this to be praise indeed. But please sign on yourself, and encourage your polyphonic friends to do the same.
