'Founded in 1963 by a small group of enthusiasts to sing madrigals and unaccompanied motets from the 16th century onwards; the first concert was given in 1965 ... We welcome new members. We do not audition, but familiarity with reading music is helpful. Some of us can sing from sight, some work out the parts on instruments at home and some learn from the wealth of sources available on the internet, such as Youtube and choralmidi. As a beginner it's possible simply to copy what the person next to you is singing!'

''Previous experience of singing in a choir and moderate sight-reading ability would be beneficial and you will need to be confident with singing unaccompanied music. You will be invited to attend a couple of rehearsals to find out what sort of group we are and how well you will fit in. If you like us, and our music, you will be asked to have a short informal audition. You do not need to prepare anything for the audition beforehand as it will involve singing something we have been working on in the rehearsal. If successful, should there be no vacancy available for your voice at that point, you will be placed on a waiting list and advised as soon as one becomes available ...'
