Just completed our third Christmas concert on consecutive nights and looking forward to a rest.

The year started off badly with the death of Paul Green our past Music Director, accompanist for the last 5 years and President; it could only get better.

We have had several memorable concerts and Mackenzie Paget joined us as our new accompanist, a wonderful young musician who next year will be playing at Carnegie Hall in the USA.

Next year brings new horizons: a major concert in March with our new President Lesley Garrett, a host of other concerts and the choir’s tour to Italy in September.

Day 2 of the tour will see us performing in St Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican followed by a concert in Duomo (Cathedral of San Rufino) Assisi, Palazzo dei Priori, Perugia, San Francesco church. Gubbio and Palazzo dei Consoli. Bevagna. A busy but enjoyable year ahead.

Paul M Green

It is with deep regret that we have to announce the death of our President Paul Green after a short illness.
Paul joined the choir as Music Director in the year 2000 and held that position for 10 years, on his retirement from that position he became the choir’s accompanist retiring at Christmas 2015.
Apart from being a wonderful musician he was a terrific arranger of all types of music of which several are in the choir’s current programme, such as Music of the Night and a 6-part arrangement of Sir C H Parry’s “I Was Glad”.
His whit was legendary, Paul we will all miss you.
