Lucie Skeaping introduces a concert by the Tallis Scholars from Chester Cathedral given as part of the Chester Festival featuring the winning compositions of the 2010 NCEM Young Composers Award.

Now in its second year, the National Centre for Early Music Young Composers Award is an incentive for young people to compose a new a cappella (unaccompanied) piece for Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass which utilises the majestic ambiance of Chester Cathedral and the remarkable singing skills of The Tallis Scholars.

The winners of the NCEM Composers Award 2010 are Owain Park, aged 16 from Bristol in the 18 years and under category and Alexander Campkin, aged 25 from London in the 19 - 25 category.

This programme offers a chance to hear the two winning compositions as well as hear the remarkable singing skills of the Tallis Scholars under Peter Phillips in performances of music by Palestrina.
