This accomplished choir performs a wide range of choral music ancient and modern, with a particular focus on challenging and rewarding new music. Recent concerts have included works by Brahms, Palestrina, Peter Maxwell Davies, Eriks Esenvalds, Gabriel Jackson, and of course J.S. Bach. In the pipeline is music by Purcell, Tomkins, Caroline Shaw and an exciting UK premier.
We are looking for Tenors and Basses with a high standard of singing and musicianship, who are interested in challenging themselves musically in a friendly and aspirational environment, led by our recently appointed conductor Daniel Mahoney. If that sounds like you, please come and join us for a few rehearsals to try us out. If you enjoy the experience and want to stay with us, we will arrange a short audition.
