Nevertheless, it is not that; rather, Renaissance Giants is a collection of major works by six composers -- Tallis, Taverner, Josquin, Palestrina, Byrd, and Victoria -- who were considered, among a few others, the guiding lights of the Renaissance period. Renaissance Giants is a little unusual in that collections of this kind usually consist of short pieces that illustrate the works of many composers, as was The Best of the Renaissance, a Philips "Duo" that likewise drew upon the catalog created by the Tallis Scholars for their own Gimell label in the s and s.
Gimell's Renaissance Giants departs from this model entirely, and in selecting long, expansive works that illustrate the glory and majesty of renaissance sacred music, this more accurately reflects the Scholars' own wishes in terms of compiling a commercially necessary greatest-hits package.
These recordings were made between and and considered state of the art both as performances and recordings; despite the passage of some time since then, they do not seem dated in the least. In accordance with Philips,. So it was a signpost. Soon, there was a critical consensus that, "the Tallis Scholar's recordings are of reliably high quality". She restored the Roman Rite , and compositional style reverted to the elaborate writing prevalent early in the century. Puer natus est nobis based on the introit for the third Mass for Christmas Day may have been sung at Christmas when Mary believed that she was pregnant with a male heir.
Some of Tallis's works were compiled by Thomas Mulliner in a manuscript copybook called The Mulliner Book before Queen Elizabeth's reign, and may have been used by the queen herself when she was younger. Elizabeth succeeded her half-sister in , and the Act of Uniformity abolished the Roman Liturgy  and firmly established the Book of Common Prayer. The religious authorities at the beginning of Elizabeth's reign, being Protestant, tended to discourage polyphony in church unless the words were clearly audible or, as the Injunctions stated, "playnelye understanded, as if it were read without singing".
The Injunctions, however, also allowed a more elaborate piece of music to be sung in church at certain times of the day,  and many of Tallis's more complex Elizabethan anthems may have been sung in this context, or alternatively by the many families that sang sacred polyphony at home. He also produced compositions for other monarchs, and several of his anthems written in Edward's reign are judged to be on the same level as his Elizabethan works, such as " If Ye Love Me ".
Toward the end of his life, Tallis resisted the musical development seen in his younger contemporaries such as Byrd, who embraced compositional complexity and adopted texts of disparate biblical extracts. Tallis is remembered as primarily a composer of sacred vocal music, in part because of his lack of extant instrumental or secular vocal music. No contemporaneous portrait of Tallis survives; the one painted by Gerard Vandergucht dates from years after the composer's death, and there is no reason to suppose that it is a fair likeness.
In a rare existing copy of his blackletter signature, he spelled his name "Tallys". Tallis is honoured with a feast day, together with Byrd and the musician John Merbecke , on the liturgical calendar of the American Episcopal Church on 21 November.
