PRIORY SINGERS 20th ANNIVERSARY 2019


The Priory Singers celebrate their 20th anniversary this year with a full diary of events from an eclectic mix of styles and genres that have been the choir's calling card for the last two decades.

They will start the years' proceedings with a programme of music for Passiontide featuring Handel's Messiah parts 2 and 3 and including several short items from the Orchestra De Cymru, who have performed side by side with the choir for a large part of their history.

Close on the heels of the Easter concert the choir will fly off to Prague, where they will perform two concerts.  The first will be a special performance in the city's Armenian church to mark the anniversary of the Genocide of 1915.  The choir have been invited to perform a newly composed Missa Brevis by the Lebanese pianist, composer and conductor, Vartan Agopian.

The repertoire for Prague will feature a cappella items by composers including Mozart, Elgar, Parry, Stanford, Tippett and Rheinberger.  In order to give those closer to home the opportunity to hear this repertoire, the choir will repeat their performance at St John the Baptist Church on Friday June 28th at 7.30pm.

The next major event in this years' calendar is a programme of sacred music by the well-loved British composer, John Rutter.  This programme will find the choir joining forces once again with the Orchestra De Cymru in performances of the Requiem and the ever-popular anthems, including For the Beauty of the Earth, A Gaelic Blessing, All Things Bright and Beautiful and God Be In My Head. 

There will be two seasonal performances toward the end of the year and details will be forthcoming a little closer to the time.

Tickets for all the concerts are available through our online store.

We hope you will join us at one or more events to celebrate this momentous year.
