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 and the rarely performed Canterbury Pilgrims by George Dyson. We’re planning an exciting range of different and varied music in the coming year.
