The Renaissance Choir has a well-earned high reputation for the performance of music from the Renaissance as well as for works from later centuries.
We work hard to maintain high standards and quality of performance. We are a friendly choir of about 30-35 in number, and have performed music in both double and triple choir form, as well as taking part in both Tallis’s Spem in Alium and Striggio’s 40 part Mass. Particular specialisms include the works of William Byrd, Thomas Tallis and Tómas Luis da Victoria, as well as later composers such as Poulenc, Whitacre and Lauridsen.
We usually give four or five concerts a year, and also give performances in the UK, most recently in Exeter and Gloucester Cathedrals.
We have been singing in the Portsmouth area for more than 40 years and have strong links with local performers and our enthusiastic audience.
