Cathedral Choir Salisbury Cathedral Choir maintains a tradition of
church music that has been offered in the Cathedral since its
consecration in 1258. Salisbury has been well known for the lead that it
has given in liturgy, and music has always played an important part in
the Cathedral's worship. In the early days the music in the Cathedral
was performed by two groups of musicians, the Vicars Choral and the
choristers, either together or separately. In the sixteenth century
there first appeared the Lay Vicar, a singing man who was not in Holy
Orders and whose duty it was to assist the Vicar Choral with the
singing. Today the music is provided by sixteen boy choristers and
sixteen girl choristers aged between 8 - 13 years and six Lay Vicars. In
1991, the same year in which the 900th anniversary of the founding of
the very first boys' choir was celebrated, Salisbury became the first
English Cathedral to form a separate and independent foundation for girl
choristers. They sang their first service in October of that year and
nowadays the weekly services are equally divided between the boy and

days, when these fall within choir holidays, and also further promotes
the Cathedral's work and mission throughout the diocese. It provides a
marvellous opportunity for accomplished singers to participate directly
in the Cathedral's liturgy and, simultaneously, fills a gap in its music

launch on Tuesday 9th May 2017, at the hall at Holy Rood Church Centre,
Gosport Road, Stubbington, Fareham, PO14 2AS. Choir sessions will be
held weekly every Tuesday from 7.30pm until 9pm during school term
times. Like all Tuneless Choirs, the aim will be to allow people to
enjoy group singing without the need to worry what they sound like. We
literally will be “singing like no one is listening” – it’s incredibly
liberating, especially if you’ve ever been told to stop singing. Join in
wholeheartedly and your endorphins will start flowing. These are the
brain’s feel-good chemicals – the name is short for “endogenous
morphine” – and the reason why singing with others has been shown to
increase life satisfaction.

attempt ensemble harmony. However, if you can hold a tune and are
willing to practice, come and give us a whirl. We don’t use written

Choir, London The
idea of the choir came from some of Europe’s leading vocal music
festivals, where contemporary repertoire commands the same skill,
polish and poise as classical music (with a lot more soul and groove!)
Our founders, Liz Swain and Woody Lewenstein, set out to create a new
group with the same energy and ambition, bringing together 25 advanced
singers from across London to create a completely new kind of
choir. And it’s turned into something we think is pretty special:
a close-knit group of singers who not only push themselves vocally but
support each other in a whole host of musical endeavours – from
recording and arranging to coaching and session singing. So if you’d
like to sing with us in places like the Southbank and the Roundhouse,

we’d love to hear from you!

Swansea Male Choir
Our choir has a long and interesting
history dating back to the dark days of the Second World War, when a
group of Air Raid Wardens discussed the possibility of forming a male
choir. As a result of that conversation a meeting was held on a November
evening in 1946 the Manselton and District Male Choir was born. In its
earliest days we followed the traditional path of male choirs and made
the rounds of the various Eisteddfodau. By the early 1950’s the choir
had established itself with the best in Wales, having taken first prize
at the National Eisteddfod at Caerphilly and Llanrwst in consecutive
years. Our new name appropriately reflects the greater Swansea area from
which we now draw our members from. Just
as our choristers are drawn from a wider area, and our performances now
take place all over the World, our musical repertoire has also expanded.
We still sing the best of many of the traditional tunes in Welsh and in
English, but you are just as likely to hear from us popular contemporary
music, from the shows, from films or from the hit parade.
