30th Anniversary Concert October 2014

Quorum, Milton Keynes

Quorum is a small chamber choir based in Milton Keynes who sing renaissance and contemporary sacred choral music at services in local churches.  Each year Quorum sings services at a Cathedral as a visiting choir.

Quorum’s repertoire includes music by renaissance composers Tallis, Byrd, Victoria, Lassus, Guerrero, etc and contemporary composers Part, Miskinis, Macmillan, Jackson, etc.

Quorum is available to sing at weddings in local churches and at 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.

Next Engagements

Next engagement is the Patronal Evensong at St Mary Magdalene Church, Willen. Quorum will be singing music by Thomas Tallis and Hans Leo Hassler.

At the end of July Quorum travels to Hereford to sing weekend services at the Cathedral. The music is an interesting mix of renaissance and contemporary choral music.

Quorum will sing Sunday services at Peterborough Cathedral on Sunday 21 August.
