09.06.20 Profile: Peter Gambie, conductor
The Renaissance Choir was formed in 1976 by Ray Calcraft, with a vision to put the beautiful music of the Renaissance period at the heart of its repertoire.
We are a chamber choir of around 34 singers that puts the beautiful music of the Renaissance period at the heart of its repertoire.
Whilst our favourite choral music is Renaissance polyphony, we also perform more contemporary works. We love to sing the music of Byrd, Tallis, Victoria and Palestrina, and later composers such as Bach, Mozart, Poulenc, Whitacre and Lauridsen, to name a few. Most of our music is performed a cappella.
We perform several concerts a year in and around Portsmouth and Petersfield and have sung at many prestigious venues in the UK and abroad, including in Italy, France, Holland, Hungary, Portugal and Poland. We have a high reputation for our sublime sound and adventurous repertoire. We rehearse in Emsworth.
