In October 2017 we performed a full concert in Beaulieu Abbey as part of the Beaulieu Music concert programme. Here is a recording of one of the songs we sang - Didavoi Nana, from Georgia. Enjoy.

What a fantastic time we had at our June concert at the St Andrews URC Church in Southampton - we helped raise over £700 for the fantastic work of the Avenue Centre who support vulnerable people across the city...

On Saturday 18th March, 9.30am to noon, we'll be hosting a free workshop in the United Reform Church in Lymington. Anyone is welcome to come along to meet the choir, hear us sing and have a go at singing with us. Refreshments will be available. This may be the perfect opportunity for anyone interested in joining a community choir to get a feel for what it's like singing with 40 to 50 other people!

A visit to the beautiful Bath Abbey should be wondrous in itself, but on this particular Saturday there was an even greater bonus, a stunning performance by Lyndhurst choir, Voices of the Forest led by their inspirational director, Fabian Lochner.

As the first sounds of soprano voices singing ‘Celtic Alleluia’ filled the space, people stopped in their tracks to listen, then sat down for more as one by one the other parts joined in, enriching the sound. What a treat then, to hear the solo bass voice singing the verse in the original Celtic dialect, followed by the whole choir joyfully ending the piece.

This free lunchtime concert lasted for just under an hour and included sacred songs from across the globe, from Christian and Jewish religions and mostly sung in either Latin or original languages. A highlight of the programme and a firm favourite with the choristers, was Mozart’s beautiful choral piece, ‘Ave Verum Corpus’ in rich four part harmony, while the concert ended with the ever popular ‘Kumbaya’ sung in true Gospel style.

Here is a link to a Youtube video of us singing Ave Verum - unfortunately some staging was placed between us and the audience, but it sounds OK!
