Chantry Quire was formed in 1999 by Christopher Larley in Chichester, to promote new music and help young local singers gain experience.

Directed by Peter Allwood since 2015, the choir now draws singers from across Sussex, though maintaining a core of Chichester musicians, and gives concerts in the city and surrounding area. Chantry Quire performs a wide range of repertoire, from the Renaissance to the present day, much of which is a cappella.
