Repertoire


Emotional, invigorating, tender, powerful. The senses are stirred by a Choir performance. Our repertoire is broad and familiar as can be seen from the songs listed below - pop to gospel, folk to international. Songs for all ages and the vocal arrangements, many by Musical Director Ben Crawley, use multi-layered harmonies to enhance the melodies. Each term new songs are rehearsed and added to the repertoire thus refreshing every performance.
