The Early Music Show This major national award is presented by The National Centre for Early Music and BBC Radio 3 in partnership with the internationally acclaimed vocal ensemble The Tallis Scholars. The award is open to young composers resident in the UK in two age categories: 18 years and under; and 19 to 25 years. The two winning works will be premiered by The Tallis Scholars in a concert given as part of the Music at Oxford International Concert Season 2014/15 and recorded for broadcast on the Early Music Show. This concert will take place on Friday 24 October 2014 at the Church of St. John the Evangelist, Oxford. Composers are invited to write a new three to four minute work for a capella (unaccompanied) choir, specifically with The Tallis Scholars in mind and scored for SSATB.
