(January 2016) The choir celebrates its thirtieth birthday this year. We shall be marking the anniversary by singing settings of all 150 Psalms (though not every verse of every Psalm!). The Psalms are the most comprehensive source of sung poetry in existence, a resource that has been drawn on by countless composers. From Russia to America, and from Estonia to Italy; in languages from Hebrew through Hungarian to Finnish; by composers from Byrd to Bernstein, and from Monteverdi to MacMillan; and from unaccompanied miniatures to symphonic masterworks: here is music to uplift, challenge, inspire and celebrate!

Composers, please read! As part of this celebration, we are holding a Psalm setting competition with cash prizes. Download the prospectus here.
What’s the common link? We gave the world premieres of all three works!
