Thomas Tallis & Missa Charles Darwin

New York Polyphony - Grammy-nominated male vocal quartet performs English renaissance music of Thomas Tallis alongside Gregory Brown’s Missa Charles Darwin. Based on five-movement structure of Catholic Mass, the new work replaces the sacred texts with lines from Charles Darwin’s revolutionary, contentious and surprisingly poetic "On the Origen of the Species". Brother of Da Vinci Code author Dan Brown, Gregory’s composition served as inspiration for Dan’s latest book, Origens.
