‘Around 120 singers, sopranos and altos each number 40 with some 20 basses and 20 tenors. We always welcome new singers. More than twenty new members, several young, have joined our ranks in the last two years ... We perform 2 or 3 concerts each year, usually, but not always, in the splendid setting of Tewkesbury Abbey. We are lucky enough to be able to perform with professional musicians and soloists, which is a truly uplifting experience and sets the Abbey reverberating!‘

'Tewkesbury Abbey, with its massive Norman tower, is one of the finest medieval churches in England. It is as wonderful an example of Norman architecture as can be found anywhere in the country. The townsfolk of Tewkesbury saved the building from destruction by purchasing it for £453 from King Henry VIII in 1540 at the dissolution of the monasteries ... When the Milton Organ was rebuilt in 1948, it was planned also to restore and enlarge the Grove Organ, making it playable from the Walker five-manual console. This scheme was not carried out, and eventually the organ was restored in 1980-81 by Messrs. Bishop and Son on "conservation" lines ...'
