Come & Sing! An invitation to potential new members to sing through some of the music we feature in our December concert.

Please get in touch via our contact page for more details!




Saturday 1st December 2018


Fantasia on Christmas Carols is our featured music for this concert. Written by Ralph Vaughan Williams in 1912, it consists largely of English folk carols, which he collected with his friend Cecil Sharp. Our programme includes music by contemporary English composers, such as Bob Chilcott, Will Todd and Alex Campkin, offering some new repertoire for the choir. Southmead Primary School choir has delighted us in our past three December concerts now and we look forward to hearing them again. As ever, there will be carols for the audience and free mince pies during the interval to start your Christmas season.




Saturday 23rd March 2019, 7.30 pm


Zadok the Priest, Handel’s great Coronation anthem, has a central position in this concert’s programme, which looks at music with a royal connection. We feature music from celebrations and laments from sadder events, such as the death of King David’s son, Absalom. Composers as diverse as Brahms, Rutter, Purcell and Byrd all have music which fits our theme and we hope our audience will appreciate the range of mood and style of this concert.






Saturday 22nd June 2019, 7.30 pm


Songs and Sonnets suggests a lighter theme for our summer concert and gives us an opportunity to feature George Shearing’s song cycle of Shakespeare settings, which we first sang in 2009. A number of other composers have set texts from Shakespeare and other poets to music and we intend to bring some less well - known names to our programme.
