The Choir performs three concerts a year with up to 100 singers. One concert a year is usually dedicated to J S Bach. We’ve also sung a wide repertoire in recent years, ranging from 16th to 20th century composers: Monteverdi to Constant Lambert, Byrd to Duruflé, Handel to Stravinsky. We recently performed the beautiful Canterbury Pilgrims by George Dyson.
