Founded in 1986, we give concerts, broadcast on radio and TV, record CDs, tour, and commission and perform new music.
(July 2019) Our new all-MacMillan Signum Classics CD, One Equal Music has been receiving enthusiastic reviews:
- “A fine choral disc…well worth a listen” (Fiona Maddocks/The Guardian)
- “The Elysian Singers under Sam Laughton are excellent, rising to every challenge that James MacMillan poses and coming out shining…This is a very fine disc and a must for any follower of the music of James MacMillan” (MusicWeb)
- “An impressive recording. A case, perhaps, of ‘first among equals’” (Gramophone)
- “A strong choice for listeners wanting to sample MacMillan’s music…Recommended” (AllMusic)
- “The Elysian Singers under Sam Laughton comfortably take everything here in their stride in a well-conceived collection” **** (BBC Music Magazine)
- “A fine introduction to MacMillan’s oeuvre” ***** (Choir & Organ)
The choir is currently taking a summer break. Rehearsals resume in September.
