Alan Tavener Conductor of Cappella Nova
Even before he co-founded the professional choir Cappella Nova in 1982, Alan had begun his work in the amateur sector with the founding and direction of several student choirs. As Organist and Choirmaster of Jordanhill Parish Church in Glasgow, in 1996 he formed the Jordanhill Community Choir. Today, the membership of the amateur choirs with which he regularly works ranges from a predominantly student choir to a choir consisting largely of retired people, with all kinds of combinations in between, and including Strathclyde University Chamber Choir (the group for which James MacMillan is continuing to compose the Strathclyde Motets). These choirs represent a wide range of abilities and standards, including many novices to choral singing. In addition to his regular choral conducting commitments, he also undertakes a considerable amount of ad hoc work with other established choirs - ranging from children's choirs to chamber choirs - and with ad hoc choirs, ranging between community choirs and one-off choral workshops.

Alan Tavener
Alan Tavener is a music graduate of the University of Oxford (where he was Heberden Organ Scholar at Brasenose College and when he gained diplomas in organ performance and teaching) and an educational research graduate of the University Strathclyde (where he focussed on the social, educational and health benefits of singing), where he was also Director of Music with responsibility for teaching, the promotion of a professional concerts series, and the direction of a wide range of student choirs, orchestras and ensembles, including Strathclyde University Chamber Choir which he continues to direct, and which has toured many times in Europe and further afield, has undertaken recorded and live radio broadcasts, and has released a CD of Romantic Scottish part-songs.
With Cappella Nova, Alan has made 13 CDs, all world premiere recordings, and directed the premieres of more than 60 commissioned pieces including major works by Sir John Tavener, James MacMillan, Roxanna Panufnik and Gabriel Jackson.
In recognition of his ground-breaking work in Scottish early choral music, in 2008 Alan was invited to direct a master-class for postgraduate choral conductors at the Moscow Conservatoire, since when he has mentored Apprentice Conductors for the Association of British Choral Directors, and led sessions at the Association's annual Convention. In 2011 he presented a paper on the holistic benefits of group-singing activities at the annual Making Music Conference.
