Durham and from churches of all denominations, Methodist, Roman Catholic, Anglican and others, but including individuals not currently associated with any particular religious organisation.'
'A small a cappella chamber choir with a particular interest in early sacred music.

'Founded in 1982 by Michael Smith, the then organist of the Parish Church of St. Oswald, King & Martyr, Oswestry. Under its original name "Cantiones Sacrae" the choir comprised 15 voices and set its sights on performing some of the more challenging music in the chamber choir repertoire. Before long it swelled to well over 20 voices and concerts were given as far afield as Chester and Shrewsbury, as well as an appearance at the Llangollen International Festival. Cantiones dropped the "Sacrae" from its title in the mid-nineties when its repertoire widened to include more and more of the quality secular music available.'
'A local friendly choir based in Lyminge, Kent of members with mixed singing ability. Founded in 1979, Cantores is an independently run choir with charitable status.

'In 1980 Morfydd Vaughan Evans brought a group of girls together to form a singing party to compete in the Urdd Eisteddfod in Abergele. Soon after its success, Morfydd decided to bring on the boys, and in 1981 Côr Aelwyd Rhuthun - later to become Côr Ieuenctid Rhuthun (Rhuthun Youth Choir) and then Côr Rhuthun a'r Cylch (Rhuthun and District Choir) - was born under Morfydd's leadership with Beryl Lloyd Roberts as the accompanist ...'

Their repertoire is extensive and a typical concert includes a rich tapestry of styles and genres with music old and new and in a colourful spectrum of languages.

They actively support local charities throughout the year at their performances and have a loyal group of supporters called the Friends of Grosvenor.'

On 21 September 1960 seven singers – two each of sopranos, altos and basses and just one tenor (‘twas ever thus!) – met at the house of Clive Bright, conductor of the Harpenden Salvation Army Band.

Since then the choir has grown but the aim of singing for fun and friendship remains core. The choir gives four main concerts a year, in the Wilmslow, Handforth and Alderley Edge areas, and also at the RNCM. We sing a range of music, both sacred and secular. From time to time we join forces with other Choral Societies to perform larger works.'
'Choir of around 30 voices. Specialising in singing unaccompanied choral music the Choir also performs works that are accompanied by piano/organ or a chamber orchestra. This established choir enjoys a reputation for high quality choral singing in the Leighton Buzzard and Linslade area of Bedfordshire, but their reputation also spreads far beyond this area as they have spent many successful weekends singing in British cathedrals and other churches ... The name, Linsdale Singers, came about after a misspelling in the programme of the choir’s first public performance in the Methodist Chapel, Wingrave, in October 1978!'

'A small chamber choir that is based in Orkney, a group of islands to the north of Scotland. It was founded in 1988 by Neil Price for the purpose of performing any choral music for a choir of such a size that would challenge and stretch its abilities. Although the aim is to achieve high standards, the choir is run informally, never losing sight of the fact that its main purpose is to provide recreation for its members. The choir performs frequently throughout Orkney and especially in St Magnus Cathedral, a magnificent building constructed by the Vikings in 1137.'
'Formed in 1990 when a group of friends realised there was a gap in the local East London singing community. They were looking for a chance to sing music outside the mainstream a cappella repertoire and within a small and fast-learning group.

Whether you usually listen to classical, jazz, pop or any other type of music, the beautiful voice of Meljon is bound to inspire.'

The music prepared is performed in a variety of venues, mainly on Teesside. Enduring favourites among composers from the extensive repertoire include Byrd, Monteverdi, Parry, Poulenc, Purcell, Tallis, Vaughan-Williams and Victoria ... Concerts range from intimate unaccompanied performances of madrigals and part songs – some with interludes from readers or instrumentalists – to major and challenging works of the choral repertoire with orchestral accompaniment. Though many events are self-promoted, the choir is happy to perform in concerts promoted by organisations such as music societies and other charities.'
'One of the finest choral groups in Oxfordshire. Formed in 1992, our repertoire embraces a huge range of styles encompassing music of the last thousand years, from Gregorian plainchant and Hildegard von Bingen, via sacred Tudor anthems and masterpieces of the Baroque period, to secular, contemporary and popular works. The choir enjoys an enviable reputation for the excitement and panache of its performances ...'

A friendly and light-hearted group covering a wide age range, we take our music making seriously but have fun doing it.'
'We are a mixed-voice choir with about 30 members, founded in 1972 ... bringing together people with a shared interest in choral singing.

Most of the singers live in and around the coastal town of Stonehaven near Aberdeen in Scotland, but a number travel from further afield. From August till June we rehearse weekly ... Our recitals take place in Stonehaven in December and May each year and we often organise additional recitals in Aberdeenshire, or further afield.'

'Founded in 2002 by a group of choristers who sought the opportunity of singing in a small a capella chamber choir and facing the challenge of forging a balanced ensemble from a small number of voices ... Viva gave few concerts while its repertoire was built. More recently, the choir’s annual programme has comprised an average of three concerts ... Viva’s repertoire ranges across the centuries and embraces both sacred and secular music in various styles. As the choir has grown in ambition, it has begun to perform with success a variety of more difficult works for which many plaudits have been received. Though foundation members conceived Viiva La Musica as an a capella ensemble, the choir’s natural development has led it towards repertoire that includes works accompanied by piano or organ.'
'Based in the Weald of Kent, we are a friendly, enthusiastic and accomplished choir of around 25 mixed voices, who enjoy coming together to make music and to perform concerts at charity fund raising events throughout Kent, Sussex and also further afield. As a choir, the Consort has a wide repertoire, ranging from Early Church music through to Negro Spirituals, Folksongs and modern works. Each programme is different and reflects the wishes of those for whom we perform. Since the Consort’s formation it has raised, through its choral concerts, many thousands of pounds for a wide range of charities and churches. It is always glad to consider invitations from such organisations. Its services are given voluntarily, although a contribution towards its music library and other expenses is gratefully received.'
'Founded in 1970 by John Coope, the Byrds set a standard for the relatively new phenomenon of semi-professional chamber choirs, bringing cathedral-choir quality to the concert platform and reviving glorious renaissance pieces as well as giving premieres of newly-commissioned contemporary works ... We are an excellent, and above all, friendly choir with a long-standing reputation. Do join us, as performer or audience. We look forward to meeting you!'
