Music for the Royals

November 10, 2010
In a time when most arts groups are cutting back, Doug Fullington’s Tudor Choir is stepping it up. The 12-strong ensemble is collaborating with the University District’s  newly-refurbished Blessed Sacrament Parish Church for a series of concerts wholly concentrated on the group’s core repertory. The format for the series was out of the Choir’s experience touring the Northwest. “Each concert has a specific focus and will run 75 minutes without an intermission,” Fullington told EE. “This approach particularly suits the Christmastide program of English lessons and carols on December 26. In February we bring together the four traditional antiphons celebrating the Virgin Mary [Alma redemptoris mater, Ave regina coelorumRegina coeli, and Salve regina] all in double-choir settings by Tomàs Luis de Victoria. The final concert on May 14 will present a spectrum of great music composed for the English Chapel Royal, concluding with William Byrd’s early masterpiece Tribui domine.”
