As the Met's first contemporary installation at the Cloisters, its branch for medieval art, the museum is mounting Cardiff's acclaimed sound work inside the Fuentidueña Chapel. Consisting of 40 speakers placed in an oval, the piece continuously plays an arrangement of a motet choir piece by Tudor composer Thomas Tallis (c. 1505–1585), in which the individual voices have been broken out, one per speaker.
