The choir is made up of 90 auditioned adult singers who give four or five concerts each year. Recent seasons have included performances of Walton's Belshazzar's Feast, Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 with His Majesty's Sagbutts and Cornetts, Britten's War Requiem, Symanowski's Stabat Mater, Dove's There Was A Child and For An Unknown Soldier, Mozart's Requiem and Mass in C Minor, Howells's Hymnus Paradisi and Beethoven Symphony No.9 with the London Mozart Players.
