Repertoire

The choir is able to sing a wide range of music from the early 2 and 3 choir music of Victoria and Guerrero, the classical repertoire of Haydn and Mozart through to modern masters such as Vaughan Williams Poulenc, Copland, Rutter and, of course, David Moss.

Many of the Spring Concerts present the Baroque Repertoire of Purcell, Charpentier, Vivaldi, Bach and Handel with the excellent Severn Strings Orchestra under the leadership of Justine Tomlinson and with nationally known soloists
