John Moore Quire, Shropshire The John Moore Quire is a
group of friends who first joined together in 1985 to

villages had such quires and we take our name from a young
nursery and seedsman called John Moore who was born in
Wellington, Shropshire, and who made a wonderful collection
of both sacred and secular tunes when he was between the age
of 17 and 19 years old. Although the John Moore Quire is
Shropshire based, its members are from a wide area including
Chester and Droitwich. We perform concerts throughout the
