The Chantry Singers is a friendly Guildford based chamber choir, specialising in high-quality performances of imaginative choral programmes.
Our enthusiasm for singing remained undiminished despite all the challenges over lockdown. We produced several videos, which you can find on Youtube but here is our Christmas recording of a carol composed by our conductor to give you a flavour of what we have been up to Farnham Youth Choir, Hart Voices and The Chantry Singers - "The Angels' Song" - by Roy Rashbrook - YouTube. We also decided to use Zoom rehearsals to put together a repertoire of short pieces of music that could be used for impromptu concerts or as encore pieces. A pared down choir sang this new repertoire to a small audience of family and friends in June 2021 - it gives a good impression of the range of repertoire we tackle albeit in bite-sized pieces!

We are now busy with rehearsals of a new programme in our regular rehearsal venue (The Church of the Holy Spirit, New Inn Lane, Burpham GU4 7HW) on Tuesday evenings from 7.45 p.m. This is for our next concert which will take place on November 27th at St Nicolas Church in Guildford with the normal varied Chantry Singers programme.
If you would like to join us or to hear us sing please use the Contact Us link at the head of this page. We look forward to hearing from you!
"We very much enjoyed the concert on Sat...... the intonation and blend of voices was really good. It was an interesting programme and worked really well in that church."
"There was such a balanced sound, wonderful diction (perfect german pronunciation!) and homogeneity and commitment ....... the difficult chords of the Sanders piece were fantastic and performed so well by you all..."
