Thomas Tallis’ monumental motet Spem in Alium is the inspiration for this week’s quiz. Heard in the first program this week, it is a work for 40 voices, divided into 8 choirs, each with 5 voices. Below, you will see a grid of 40 letters, organized in 8 columns and 5 rows.
Moving from left to right, and selecting one letter from each column, can you spell out five 8-letter composers from the Tudor period? Every letter is used once!
