Reverie is delighted to have been selected to compete in the London International A Cappella Choir Competition in conjunction with St John’s Smith Square and Peter Phillips’ The Tallis Scholars. This inaugural competition is staged in memory of Sir John Tavener, who was intended to be a judge for the final on April 26th.
The competition will feature a range of Tavener’s exquisite choral music, from which each competing choir will make a selection, alongside that of other modern composers, gorgeous Renaissance polyphony, and one piece in their native language.
