Welcome to the Renaissance Music Group Choir web site. Here, you can find details of our upcoming concerts and how to join us as a singer. New singers are always welcome – for more details click here.
To introduce ourselves: We are a small, friendly choir, specialising in European choral music up to about 1650. We sing two main concerts each year in Liverpool Cathedral Lady Chapel, in March and December. We also provide the music for a small number of church services throughout the year, beginning with a traditional service for us at St Asaph Cathedral each Autumn.
Our next performances:
This Autumn the Renaissance Music Group is looking at England’s own musical past, written after the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 when Henry VII became king and through the reign of his more famous son, Henry VIII, whose death in 1547 brought about such massive changes to religious life in this country and to the music that went with it.
We shall be singing parts of John Taverner’s splendid ‘Western Winde’ mass in St Asaphs Cathedral at their Choral Eucharist on Sunday 26th October (11am), and for our Christmas recital (’Mother of God’) (Liverpool Cathedral Lady Chapel, Sunday 7th December 8pm) works by John Sheppard and Thomas Tallis, with a glance at simpler works from earlier times. Exciting stuff.
But we would like to have more singers to join and help us perform it. There is a lot of information about the group on this site, or you can ring Alan Wilson 0151-427 3791 or email Morris Davies at email@example.com. Anyone interested is welcome to come to a rehearsal, (Wednesdays 7.30-10:00, University School of Music, off Oxford Street, from 24th September).
