Paragraph about the ensemble:
Hailed as “a superb choir” (Gramophone), as well as “a choir to watch” (Fanfare), the Tudor Choir and its director Doug Fullington have received national and international attention as interpreters of Renaissance polyphony and early American music. Founded by Fullington in 1993, the Tudor Choir is a Seattle-based professional vocal chamber ensemble of 12 core singers; the group can expand to up to 40 members for works such as Thomas Tallis’s monumental "Spem in alium." The choir has performed extensively throughout the Pacific Northwest, including concert appearances in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Portland, Oregon. The choir has performed under guest conductors, including Peter Phillips, Paul Hillier, Andrew Parrott, Stephen Cleobury and Martin Haselböck, and has made guest appearances with Mark Morris Dance Group, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and Early Music Guild of Seattle.
