and look forward to:

A Special Sound

Being part of a blended sound described by John Rutter as “transparent” and by Susan Gritton as “a special sound”.

Touring

This coming season we will be singing in Winchester Cathedral, Tewkesbury Abbey and the Chapel of St. John's College, Cambridge, as well as our "home" venue of St. Mary's Church, Reigate, and other venues in Surrey and Sussex. Plans for future seasons include visits to Snape Maltings and the Queen Elizabeth Hall, and options to sing in France and Italy.

Plenty of Variety

A wide range of styles and idioms from Bach to Britten, lots of English music including living composers.

A great home venue

St Mary’s Church Reigate - beautiful, large, and well set out for music.

Rewarding rehearsals

Productive but good humoured rehearsals where high musical expectations are fulfilled and mingled with plenty of fun.

Joining is painless...!

Applications

Applications for membership are always welcome in all sections. You need:
