Walk into a cathedral anywhere in England — Salisbury, Wells, York — and if the choir is rehearsing, chances are those fine, well-sanded voices are filling the high vaults with the rosy, intricate counterpoint of Thomas Tallis. The ensemble Chapelle du Roi only sounds as if it ought to be French — the ensemble's eight singers are based in London and have Tallis in their bones.
