Spem in Alium at Spitalfields Festival

June 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

- £10 – £50

The voices of Dunedin Consort and National Youth Chamber Choir of Great Britain combine in a concert which pivots on two works of epic scale.

Frequently hailed as one of the most astonishing pieces of choral music ever created, Tallis’s Spem in alium is a devotional motet for 40 separate voices interwoven to create an ever-shifting mosaic of sound. The audience will be surrounded by, and immersed in, song.

A contemporary response comes from Spitalfields Festival Curator Errollyn Wallen, with her maritime-themed When the Wet Wind Sings. The same forty voices take us on a sea-faring voyage across five centuries.
