Our next concert, on June 11th, at Holy Trinity, will be a full performance of Messiah. Music can be hired (at less expense) but you may wish to purchase your own copy. It’s one of those pieces that choirs return to again and again so it’s worth owning, even if you usually hire music. This link will take you to Amazon where the Watkins Shaw edition is available for under £6. This is the edition that most people have.
We’re all enjoying singing together again, but we do need to be careful to minimise the risks involved in doing so. Your committee have therefore reviewed and updated the guidelines (in October 2021) to help keep us safe. Do please have a read, and follow them when next you join us. Thank you.

In the year 2000 we held a special concert to celebrate over 100 years of singing as a choir. The concert included:
- Vivaldi’s Gloria
- John Bawden’s “Down Yonder Green Valley”, a set of popular folk tunes arranged especially for us by him.
- Michael Hurd’s “Five Songs of Praise”, commissioned from him by us as a centenary piece.
