‘Perform West Gallery Music - the sacred and secular music performed by amateur singers and instrumentalists during the Georgian period (ca.1720-1850). We concentrate particularly on music known to have been performed in the Southeastern counties, principally from Kent and Sussex. We are a mixed choir, singing mostly in four parts, accompanied by stringed and wind instruments. We dress in costume appropriate to the period and our performances include anecdotes and readings which set the music in its historical and social context. Members of the choir research the music, which we perform in concerts, church services, and workshops. Our repertoire is drawn from printed and manuscript music books from the southeast of England. These have survived in libraries and archives, occasionally in churches and chapels, or in the possession of private individuals, sometimes descendants of the early choir members and musicians.’
