Our performance of Handel’s ‘Israel in Egypt’ with the Consort of Twelve in Chichester on 3 July was a great success – everything came together on the day, with trombones, trumpets and drums making an exciting sound, and some guest singers helping the choir to an outstanding performance. Ed Hastings, deputising for our indisposed tenor soloist at the last minute, did us proud. Click here for a review of the concert:

Our Christmas concert on 3 December, also at All Saints, will include Schutz: ‘The Christmas Story’. New choir members are welcome: please get in touch if you are interested.
