For a few years it seemed that polyphony in church worship might be prohibited altogether. The puritans who opposed the vestments also tried hard to banish all curious singing and playing of the organ. But they were narrowly defeated, and the official position remained as formulated in a royal injunction of 1559.Tallis, by temperament and training, belonged to a late-medieval generation of monastic musicians to whom novelty as such was no more a virtue in music than in any other sphere of religious life.In general, however, his vocal music is characterized by a restraint, a deliberately undemonstrative quality, that has sometimes been stigmatized as dullness.
