Our repertoire is consistently varied, offering musical challenges to the singers as they have to move from one style to another throughout a programme, but also constantly giving our listeners new sound experiences.

The music covers many centuries, from the Medieval to the contemporary, with and without accompaniment, and in styles we range from 'classical' through folk, popular, jazz, madrigal and sacred. Serendipity: the choir is now commissioning local composers to write works specifically for us.
