I love the music of Tallis, but my overall favourite composer of early choral music has to be Tomas Luis De Victoria.  His muic is utterly sublime, especially his double choir stuff.  Missa Ave Regina Caelorum is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard, as is Missa Vidi Speciosam.  I have CDs of these masses sung by the Choir of Westminster Cathedral.  The Requiem Mass for Six Voices is also gorgeous!
