Octagon with lines connecting all vertices with one anotherI recently wrote about the 40-part motet written by Thomas Tallis, and showed you a wonderful visualization of the piece, which is titled Spem in alium.

Here is a video about how artist Janet Cardiff has taken this music and created a unique installation, The Forty Part Motet.

Thanks to friend and reader Paul B. for telling me about the Cardiff installation.
