Spem in Alium Recital

Petros Singers’ Spem in Alium singing workshop culminates in this hour-long recital which will place Tallis’ 40-part motet within the context of his other choral works, as well as works by his pupil, William Byrd. Petros Singers' 40th-anniversary commission by Kerensa Briggs – St Peter – continues the Anglican choral tradition pioneered by Tallis and Byrd into the 21st Century. In addition to the Workshop Choir performing Spem in Alium, you will hear performances by the professional workshop leaders (singing together as The Garter Consort) and by Petros Singers.
