Quorum, Milton Keynes
Quorum is a small chamber choir based in Milton Keynes who sing renaissance sacred music for services at local churches. Each year Quorum sings services at a Cathedral as a visiting choir.
Quorum’s repertoire includes renaissance sacred music (Tallis, Byrd, Victoria, Lassus, Guerrero, etc) and contemporary choral music (Part, Miskinis, Macmillan, Jackson).
Quorum is available to sing at weddings in local churches and corporate events in the Milton Keynes/North Bucks area.
The choir is well known for the high quality of its singing, its flexibility, and ability to provide suitable music for a range of church services including Choral Evensongs and Sung Eucharists.
The group is considered ‘quorate’ when there are enough people present to cover each part, hence the name Quorum.
For the Patronal Festival at St Mary Magdalene, Church, Willen on Sunday 19 July 2015 Quorum will provide music for Evensong. Details of the pieces to be announced shortly.
Looking ahead to the autumn, Quorum will be a visiting choir at Coventry Cathedral the weekend of 24 and 25 October 2015. Quorum will be singing a mixture of music from renaissance and contemporary choral composers: Gabriel Jackson, Vytautus Miskinis, Duarte Lobo and Thomas Tallis, etc. Details of the music will be added shortly.
