Patrick Craig

Patrick has sung as the counter tenor with the Tallis Scholars for twenty years, and also with the Cardinall’s Musick and as a Vicar Choral in St Paul’s Cathedral Choir.


Patrick began singing as a chorister in Lichfield Cathedral. He took to conducting while at Cambridge,
and afterwards, during his post-graduate singing course at the Royal College of Music,  he founded and directed ‘Aurora Nova’, the prestigious all-female professional choir – the first to lead Sunday services in St Paul’s Cathedral.


As well as his solo singing career as a counter tenor, Patrick has been a teacher, harpist, lecturer and director, including many years directing on the Tallis Scholars Summer Schools in the UK, USA and Australia.  He is the guest conductor of several specialist ensembles, and has led many workshops for choirs and organisations, including exploring 16th and 17th century music with amateur singers attending Lacock Early Music courses in Italy, Spain and Croatia.


His first concert as Music Director of Temenos was on Saturday 15 October 2016.
