  • Description:

    We are experienced choir members who enjoy singing a wide variety of sacred and secular choral music from the 16th to the 20th centuries. Our repertoire is largely unaccompanied and we welcome new members with good sight-singing ability. Our current core book is OUP 'Oxford Choral Classics: Sacred Choruses', which encompasses works from Monteverdi to Elgar (please bring your own copy). Additional material is provided through inter-library loan music sets (modest fee applies) and free online collections, such as CPDL choralwiki. These enable us to extend our range further into small-scale classical SATB works such as British and continental European madrigals, English part-songs from Purcell to the present day, plus motets, anthems and seasonal music from Palestrina to Bruckner. Those without access to a printer may borrow copies.
