‘We have taken the view that, as there are a number of choirs dedicated solely to Classical music within the area, we should offer a more varied repertoire, which is pleasurable both to audience and choir. Therefore our concerts cater for a range of tastes and our repertoire includes popular classics, traditional and popular songs, spirituals, and songs from the shows as well as Classical music. We find there is something to suit all tastes. The choir members even get to choose some items in each concert!’

‘A small group of singers whose aim is to select and perform the very best, often unfamiliar, sacred, secular and consort music, and bring it through occasional performances to a wider audience in the west Dorset and east Devon areas. Our mission is to offer sublime music, sung to a high standard, to those who are perhaps unaware of its sheer beauty and range of emotions ... We perform three concert series a year (usually a total of nine concerts), with about six Thursday-evening rehearsals per series.‘
