The choir has been celebrating the 30th anniversary of its founding by singing settings of all 150 Psalms (though not every verse of every Psalm!), and has almost reached the end of the cycle. The Psalms are the most comprehensive source of sung poetry in existence, a resource that has been drawn on by countless composers. From America to Estonia; in languages from Hebrew through Hungarian to Finnish; by composers from Monteverdi to MacMillan; and from unaccompanied miniatures to symphonic masterworks: here is music to uplift, challenge and inspire!

(January 2017) Our final Psalmfest concert, which takes place on January 28th at St John’s Smith Square, promises to be a spectacular affair. Swelled by a large number of returning former singers, a choir of over eighty, backed by a full orchestra will perform Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms, Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms and rousing works by Elgar, Bruckner, Holst, Vaughan-Williams and Judith Weir.
