Welcome to the "British Choirs on the Net" website. British Choirs on the Net has achieved an enviable reputation as the premier 'listings' website for British and International Choirs. It also remains predominantly a free listing service 'serving the Choral Tradition'. As it continues to develop (and take up more web hosting space) some fee based listings will be introduced for specialist areas together with limited merchandising & sponsorship opportunities (see below). However the site content and direction remains primarily shaped by its contributors (albeit with editorial veto). My thanks to Rod Cuff for creating and maintaining the site from 1995 until 2002, and for entrusting me with the future of the web site. Thanks also to those who have offered their best wishes in this new venture, particularly Tim Ault from Gerontius.net and also Michael Dillon of McDill Design for the gift of the original BCN logo.

A message from Rod Cuff, creator of BCN.


Seven years after I created British Choirs on the Net, which grew beyond my wildest imaginings, I've finally had to acknowledge that I no longer have the time to maintain it properly, and I've now passed it over to a new owner -- Phillip Tolley. To my many hundreds of correspondents and contributors over the past 7 years -- my greetings and thanks. Please continue to use and add to BCN for many years to come.
