"Outstanding performance from an incredibly talented ensemble and passionate conductor. Polyphony which truly enriches the soul. Thank you for a memorable and most enjoyable evening!"
“Helped by a wonderful acoustic, we knew from the very first perfectly balanced chord that we were in for a treat. The blend and balance in the sound was enviable with no individual voices sticking out. And the repertoire was something of a revelation. Congratulations one and all.”
“Thank you so much for arranging such an enjoyable event last Monday. It was simply the best couple of hours' practical music making in which I have ever participated.”
In common with many musical groups, we are currently unable to perform owing to restrictions arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. We are looking to find alternative ways of bringing Renaissance music to you in these difficult times. We are very much looking forward to being able to sing together and perform once more in the future. We are incredibly grateful to our generous supporters for their kind donations over recent months, which have helped to sustain the choir. Any donations you feel able to give us will enable us to continue to bring you online content and to present concerts in the future when restrictions allow.

Historical Music in a TV Series
A Chat with David Fallis, Historical Music Producer for The Tudors
Wednesday 12th May 2021, 7pm
£10 full price, £8 concessions
How does music get selected and recorded for a TV series about Henry VIII? Who makes final choices? Does historical accuracy ever rub up against “directorial vision”? What is the relationship between the historical music and the modern theme music?
David Fallis produced the historical music for the Showtime series The Tudors with Jonathan Rhys Meyers playing Henry VIII of England. In this discussion, he will share a “behind-the-scenes” look at the journey from script to on-screen in historical drama.
From the Conductor's Stand
Whilst, the Renaissance Singers are currently unable to perform or rehearse owing to restrictions arising from the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are continuing to explore other ways of engaging with our audience and supporters.
Our Musical Director, Dr. David Allinson, has been giving a series on online talks entitled 'From the Conductor's Stand'. These talks, available for free, give David's perspective on the repertoire we love together with insight on what it is like to conduct the Renaissance Singers.
