Robin Gregory reviews our Autumn 2019 concert

Rachel’s Pie Jesu seemed to float heavenwards, and Jozik’s Libera Me perfectly prepared us for the closing In Paradisum: “eternal rest” indeed, and totally matching Fauré’s setting. The chorus was impeccable.

About us

Choir photo

We are a choir of about 60 singers based in Hailsham, East Sussex.

You can find references to a choral group in Hailsham from the early 1930s, but it faded from view during the war - they probably had even more troubles recruiting tenors and basses then! The present Society was founded in 1961, so we are now in our 59th year and still going from strength to strength.

We perform at least four main concerts during the year, with programmes featuring anything from Bach (Christmas Oratorio, St. John Passion) to Beatles, Rossini (Petite Messe Solennelle) to Gershwin, Rutter (Requiem, Magnificat, carols) to Rogers and Hart.

We’re a sociable lot too, music workshops, coffee mornings, quizzes, even the odd pint of beer or glass of wine (or two)!

If you’re looking for a fast way to increase your circle of friends, as well as an opportunity to sing hugely enjoyable music go to the ‘Join Us’ page.
