Patrick Craig, conductor
Here comes Tallis Vocalis’ first Christmas concert! The programme will be a mix of Renaissance and contemporary Christmas motets and traditional carols. Patrick Craig, formerly long-time alto of the Tallis Scholars and currently director of the all-female choir Aurora Nova of UK, will conduct.
Programme will be our usual mix of renaissance and contemporary music, with a couple of traditional carols thrown in for good fun. It also includes a new commission from our very own Vanissa Law, alongside a few other contemporary carols written by female composers.
