Hertfordshire Chorus, directed by David Temple, is one of the finest large choirs in the country, with 130 members of all ages from across Hertfordshire, surrounding counties and London. We offer a high standard of music in a fun and friendly atmosphere.
Our repertoire is varied; recent programmes have included Elgar’s The Kingdom, Handel’s Messiah, Bach’s Magnificat, Berlioz’s Te Deum and Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music as well as Tippett’sA Child of our Time, Bruckner’s Mass in E Minor and songs by Morten Lauridsen and Eric Whitacre.
We sing in some of the top venues in the UK, with appearances in the Royal Albert Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, Barbican Hall, Birmingham’s Symphony Hall and The Sage Gateshead, as well as concerts in and around Hertfordshire, including St Albans Cathedral.
We have a special fund to commission new music, maintaining and developing choral singing for the future. We are particularly proud of the work we do with children, to help encourage the next generation of choral singers and music enthusiasts.
