The Tudor Choir is a professional mixed-voice choir which maintains a flexible membership of between 10 and 30 singers. Founded by Artistic Director Doug Fullington in 1993, the choir specializes in Renaissance polyphony and also sings Baroque, early American and 20th century music. The Tudor Choir has sung under guest conductors Stephen Cleobury, Martin Haselböck, Paul Hillier, Andrew Parrott and Peter Phillips. In addition to an annual subscription series presented in the Seattle area, where they are Artists in Residence at St Mark’s Cathedral, The Tudor Choir has performed with Pacific Northwest Ballet and the Mark Morris Dance Group. The choir has also performed in conjunction with Seattle Opera, recorded for Seattle Symphony Orchestra’s “Musically Speaking” series and performed live on NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion” broadcast.

Other recordings include The Shapenote Album, a collection of American shapenote tunes, and Fair with her firstborn, English chant, polyphony and carols for Christmas, both on the Pelican label (available through Loft Recordings).
