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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
