Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The intimacy of our ensemble is one of our strengths. We are all soloists in our own right but come together with our individual voices to form a robust, yet flexible sound as an ensemble which allows us to cater our sound to almost anything.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?


Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We each have our own idols, and we are able to craft our own unique sound through our own inspiration, rather than wanting to sound like another ensemble.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Broadcasting live on Radio 4.

Do you have different line-up options?

We can provide a mixture of singers tailored to your individual needs. Also, if you'd like us to sing with accompaniment (for a church service, for example, we can work with an accompanist linked to the church, or provide our own.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Not a problem, we can alter this as required to suit your needs.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?


How much time do you need to set up?

30 minutes.

Can you roam around while you perform?

We can.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?


Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

In February 2023, I had the opportunity to work with the Tallis Consort under the direction of Chris Why during the premiere performance of my composition 'Dona Nobis Pacem' in Sheffield Cathedral. The ensemble consists of very talented singers with high vocal skills and great musical sensitivity. My experience of working with the Tallis Consort has been very positive. Chris is always helpful, professional and considerate. He possesses superb conducting skills. The ensemble members put a lot of heart into performing music and do it at a very high musical level. In addition to being gifted musicians, they are also wonderful people. I sincerely recommend working with this excellent ensemble.

We booked Tallis Consort to perform before and during our wedding service at Bolton Abbey, and they provided some of the most incredible and memorable moments of our day. As agreed with Chris in a phone conversation before the event, Tallis performed a variety of carols and hymns suited to our winter prior to our service, supported our congregation in the hymns, and sang Oh Holy Night as we signed the register. Standing at the front of church, literally just married and hearing this beautiful performance was a truly heavenly moment for us both, and many of our guests were brought to tears. We have been repeatedly contacted by guests to compliment Tallis Consort’s performance, and even the reverend was blown away by the quality of their singing. In addition to this, the singers were professional and friendly, and the booking process was very straightforward. My only regret was that (as the bride), I wasn’t able to hear more of their performance beforehand! I will definitely be keeping them in mind for future events. A huge thank you to Chris and all the singers who performed for us.
