    ​We hope you'll find what you want in it somewhere. If not, please contact us to ask.

    The Poll on the right

    Our polls are just for fun. Nothing is recorded other than the number of people who have made each choice. They will make no difference to the running of the choir!

    Dona Nobis Pacem at the Proms

    We shall be singing Vaughan Williams' evocative cantata Dona Nobis Pacem this term and it will be the work for our Open Rehearsal on Saturday 15 September. It was performed at this year's BBC Proms on 12 August and will be shown on BBC4 on TV on 2 September though it is also available on BBC Radio 3 iPlayer to listen to.  It's a great programme in total but Dona Nobis Pacem only starts at about 1hr 10mins if you are short of time.

    New Conductor

    We are delighted to announce that our new Conductor - his preferred title - is Peter Stallworthy. Peter officially took office on 1 June and commences rehearsals on 10 September for the concert on 8 December. He has met the committee to decide concert programmes and open event music for the next few years .

    We look forward to working with Peter as a choir. More information about him is now on the Who's Who in the Choir page.

    Open Rehearsal

    We've got an Open Rehearsal morning 15 September. Details here.
