About Lincoln Cathedral Choir

There have been choristers in Lincoln since the Middle Ages. The current choir, led by Director of Music, Aric Prentice is made up of 20 boys and 20 girls from various schools in Lincolnshire along with 11 adult lay vicars and choral scholars.

The choir sings Evensong six days a week during choir term with a sung Eucharist in addition each Sunday and the choir also performs in concert throughout the year. Radio broadcasts, foreign tours and CD recordings are also important parts of the choir’s work.

About The Tallis Scholars

The Tallis Scholars were founded in 1973 by their director, Peter Phillips. Through their recordings and concert performances, they have established themselves as the leading exponents of Renaissance sacred music throughout the world. Peter Phillips has worked with the ensemble to create the purity and clarity of sound which he feels best serves the Renaissance repertoire. It is the resulting beauty of sound for which The Tallis Scholars have become so widely renowned.
