Join us online to hear the renowned ORA Singers live from the Turbine Hall

In 1570 British composer Thomas Tallis, wrote one of the most iconic works for the human voice. Spem in Alium is a monumental work composed for 40 separate singers. To celebrate the 450th anniversary of this work, Tate Modern and the ORA Singers are hosting a unique socially-distanced livestream from the Turbine Hall.

The ORA Singers will also perform the world premiere of a specially commissioned 40-part work by one of the UK's greatest living choral composers, Sir James MacMillan. This piece reflects the message of 'Spem', meaning hope, for the modern day.

This performance was scheduled for May 2020, to coincide with Tate Modern’s 20th birthday and was originally conceived to include a collaborative performance with local choirs. The event was postponed with the galleries closed during lockdown. We want to bring Tallis’ message of hope across the centuries and to make a gesture of solidarity to other art forms.
