Biography Siglo de Oro & Patrick Allies

Patrick Allies
began his musical education as a chorister at the Temple Church in London, under Stephen Layton. He sang in Gloucester Cathedral Choir before taking up a Choral Scholarship to study Music at King’s College London, graduating in 2010 with First Class Honours. Patrick went on to postgraduate study at the University of Cambridge where he sang in Jesus College Choir.

While at university, Patrick founded Siglo de Oro, which has since become a professional ensemble, performing both renaissance and contemporary music. In 2016 Patrick and Siglo de Oro released their first CD with Delphian Records, featuring the world premiere recordings of eight newly-commissioned Advent Antiphons, in collaboration with saxophonist Sam Corkin. BBC Radio 3 Record Review called it 'an impressive and adventurous debut from the ensemble’.

Patrick also holds positions as Musical Director of Wokingham Choral Society, Lecturer at Morley College, Conductor of Khoros, Director of Music at All Saints’ Putney, and Director of West Sussex Youth Choir. In 2017 Patrick was shortlisted for both the Nordic Choral Conducting Competition and the 3rd Juozas Naujalis International Competition for Choral Conductors.
