We are delighted to have secured the services of Peter Phillips, world-renowned as the Director of the Tallis Scholars and now also Director of Music at Merton College, Oxford, who leads this Singing Day, which we intend to devote to preparing and singing Tallis's famous motet in forty parts, Spem in Alium, at the beautiful Parish Church of St Mary in Hitchin. To take part in singing this magnificent piece is an uplifting experience for every singer, and so the chance to do so under the direction of someone who has made the piece his own really is unmissable.
St Mary's is a vast church so we?ve room for plenty of participants. We will start work at 10 am and conclude at 3.30 pm at the very latest, with an adequate break for lunch.
A copy of the music is available here, which we ask you to get to know before you come. We will assign you a voice-part closer to the time.
Please book well in advance to be sure of your place.
