 (Registered Charity No: 511917)

History

The Choir was founded in 1969 by its first conductor, Robert Walker, and developed its own identity by performing, annually, 2 concerts of major works and a Christmas Wassail.

Jeffery Babb was appointed as the Choir's third conductor in 1979. During his time, the Choir continued to sing with considerable success, with works ranging from a cappella 16th century music and Bach's B Minor Mass, to specially commissioned madrigals composed by its first conductor, along with music by 20th century composers including Vaughan Williams, Elgar, Britten, Bernstein, Ravel and Debussy.

The Choir has joined forces with other choral societies to perform large 19th century choral works such as the Verdi Requiem, while continuing to sing as a small chamber choir for authentic performances of the Baroque and Classical repertoires.

The Choir has visited Germany, and has sung with the National Symphonia and with the English Chamber Orchestra. The Choir has also performed on BBC radio.

November 2001 saw the appointment of Steven Maxson as the Choir's fourth musical director, since when the Choir has performed music by composers including Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Fauré, Poulenc and Walton.
