Peter Phillips has made an impressive if unusual reputation for himself in dedicating his life’s work to the research and performance of Renaissance sacred music. Having won a scholarship to Oxford in 1972, Peter Phillips studied Renaissance music with David Wulstan and Denis Arnold, and gained experience in conducting small vocal ensembles, already experimenting with the rarer parts of the repertoire. Besides his work with The Tallis Scholars, Peter Phillips has for many years contributed a regular column (as well as a cricket column) to The Spectator. In 1995 he became the Advisory Editor of The Musical Times, the oldest continuously published music journal in Europe.
