“In his seven section Requiem, the French composer Gabriel Faure distilled some of the most beautiful melodies he ever composed. The creation was almost certainly a musical tribute to his father who died in 1885, three years before work on the Requiem commenced”.

“The Five Mystical Songs are a musical composition by English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams written between 1906 and 1911. The work sets out four poems by seventeenth century Welsh poet and Anglican priest George Herbert from his 1633 collection The Temple: Sacred Poems.”


We are a mixed choir always welcoming newcomers.  We sing a wide variety of choral works and perform two or three concerts a year.   Although aspiring to high standards, anyone who wishes to develop their singing abilities is welcome. Auditions are usually only required if the section for the voice concerned is oversubscribed.   The choir is very friendly, reasonably serious but NOT SOLEMN!     You can attend up to six rehearsals on a trial basis, without obligation.

Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 7.30 to 9.30 in the Big Hall at Mount Kelly College.

Annual subscriptions are £60 full subscription. Membership is free to under 18s.

For more information contact either Membership Secretary Chris Caple - quel1@aol.com or Chairman Robin Venables  – rjv@sigmanova.co.uk
