The idea for forming a choir featuring singers from around the East

from Nottingham realised how much fun they had singing under their own

slight delay due to a cycling accident, the choir was born in the
intimate space of Trent College Chapel, with a programme of Schütz, J.S.
Bach and Rheinberger. As well as being a roaring success, the choir
enjoyed themselves immensely, and would love to hear from you if you
