The Tudeley Singers was founded in April 2018 by young organists Alex Trigg and Jack Gonzalez-Harding. Their aim was to bring together some of the finest local singers to perform a variety of repertoire for cathedral services during the holidays. The choir has most recently sung at Southwark and Rochester cathedrals, as well as Westminster Abbey. They were invited back to all three of those venues, and will be returning next year. There are plans to visit Canterbury, Hereford, Worcester, Gloucester, Wells, St Paul’s and St German's (Peel, Isle of Man) cathedrals over the next four years.
The Tudeley Singers has a very wide range in repertoire. In 2019 the choir has sung works by Victoria, Purcell, Haydn, Bruckner, Stanford, Ireland, Wesley, Britten, Duruflé and many more. The choir is also proficient in the singing of psalmody and other elements of the liturgy.
As well as services, The Tudeley Singers performs several concerts a year. Their first concert was in March 2019, when they sang Fauré's Requiem, accompanied by The Orchestra of St Augustine (which also performed Fauré's Pavane and Bruch's First Violin Concerto with young violinist Jonathan Hayward). 335 tickets were sold, and the concert raised nearly £4000 for Child Action Lanka. The choir's next two concerts will be of works by Duruflé and Britten. Visit the Events page for more details.
