Music Policy

Our Service repertoire is drawn from two distinct areas of English Church Music: Firstly the period from 1500 - 1700 and secondly from the works of Contemporary Composers who have connections with the choir. We recorded some of our contemporary repertoire by composers we know in June 2006. We also recorded a selection of our repertoire on our CD called 'Choral Treasures' in 2011.

A Third section, that of 20th Century American & Norwegian Choral Music has been added to reflect our visits.  Also we will be adding some larger works by Bach, Boyce, Gibbons and other composers during the course of next year. Some of these will make use of strings as accompaniment.

During 2009 the Heritage Masterworks Chorale began to work alongside the Heritage Singers. This group will perform neglected masterworks in interesting venues. Look out for more details.

In 2013, we are visited Scotland for the first time to share the heritage of English Choral Music with the audiences on the Isle of Cumbrae and to enjoy the local music and culture.
We were well received and invited back. Trouble is it's such a long way to go - but really beautiful when you get there!
