Talking Tallis

A celebration of the work of Thomas Tallis including discussions and historical considerations of his place in the canon of Tudor composers. Our talk features ORA Singers’ Founder and Artistic Director Suzi Digby in conversation with composer Sir James MacMillan. In addition there are papers and discussions by Kerry McCarthy, Music Analyst (whose new book on Thomas Tallis will be out this summer) and exciting discoveries in the score by Peter Gritton, Composer, Arranger and Educator and we are inviting questions from the audience.  We are delighted to also be bringing you exclusive preview excerpts from ORA Singers’ latest album (launching in August), which will include James MacMillan’s Vidi Aquam – a new commission for 40 voices, as a reflection of Tallis’ monumental Spem in alium.
