30th Anniversary Concert October 2014

Quorum, Milton Keynes

Quorum is a chamber choir in Milton Keynes who specialise in singing Renaissance and Contemporary sacred choral music. The choir is based at St Mary Magdalene Church, Willen in Milton Keynes where each year they sing several Evensongs and at the Carol Service. The choir also has a long tradition of singing at services at local services, and each year Quorum sings weekend services at cathedrals around the country.

Highly praised for its excellent and expressive singing, Quorum is considered as one of the finest amateur choirs in the area singing Renaissance and Contemporary choral music. In its choice of repertoire Quorum showcases little known Renaissance music and extends this principle to Contemporary music. The choir is well known for its innovative and imaginative programming of Contemporay choral music alongside music from the Renaissance.

Quorum is available to sing at weddings in local churches and at corporate events in the Milton Keynes/North Bucks area.

The group is considered ‘quorate’ when there are enough people present to cover each part, hence the name Quorum.  If you are interested in joining Quorum please contact us as vacancies arise from time to time.

Next Engagements

In July Quorum will be singing at the Patronal Evensong at St Mary Magdalene Church, Willen at 6 pm.

On 29 and 30 July Quorum will be singing weekend services at Coventry Cathedral featuring motets/anthems by Spanish and Flemish renaissance composers and the contemporary Latvian composer Rihards Dubra. Quorum will sing service music by renaissance composers Alonso Lobo, Adrian Willaert and Richard Farrant and contemporary composers Ben Parry and Pawel Lukaszewski.
