26 June 2022 – Renaissance Choir members say what they think about the choir – video
We are a chamber choir of around 34 singers that puts the beautiful music of the Renaissance period at the heart of its repertoire. We rehearse in Emsworth, perform at beautiful venues in and around Portsmouth and Petersfield, and go on tour most years to Europe and the UK. We specialise in Renaissance choral music but we also enjoy singing more contemporary choral works from composers such as Whitacre, Lauridsen, Rutter and Poulenc. We mostly sing a cappella.
We perform several concerts a year locally 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 have been singing in the Portsmouth area and beyond for more than 45 years and have strong links with local performers and our enthusiastic audience.
