Thomas Tallis Society Choir, conducted by Eamonn Dougan, performs 40-part motets - Tallis' Spem in Alium and David Bednall's Lux orta est iusto - alongside works of Byrd, Gibbons, Weelkes and Philips.

Taking advantage of the splendour of a Hawksmoor church and its elegant galleries, the Thomas Tallis Society Choir, directed by Eamonn Dougan, will be performing a new reconstruction of the Thomas Tallis 40-part motet, Spem in Alium, with the English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble. To compliment this 16th century masterpiece of polyphony, the choir will perform Lux orta est iusto by the contemporary young English composer, David Bednall – a 40-part motet, inspired by Tallis’ Spem in Alium. Multi-part motets by Byrd, Gibbons, Weelkes and Philips will complete the programme.
