The publicly and critically acclaimed Forty-Part Motet is spending the Winter in Winnipeg. This brilliant sound sculpture by Canadian artist Janet Cardiff is a reworking of Spem in Alium (1575) by Thomas Tallis, an English composer from the 16th century. Forty separately-recorded choir voices are played back through speakers positioned in a circle in the exhibition space, inviting visitors to stand inside the music.
