The Tallis Consort was formed in 1989 by Dr Brian French. After Brian left the Island, Charles Cain became Director for many years, with Nicholas J Roberts also conducting some of the concerts during that period. Brian Head was then the director until May 2015, when Dr Peter Litman, who is Organist and Director of Music at Peel Cathedral took over. The director since 2018 is Steve Daykin, Director of Music at King William’s College
The Tallis Consort is a group of singers specialising in a cappella music. The repertoire is mostly medieval and renaissance music, but also includes works by more modern composers.
