Cranmer Company of Singers

We are always interested in hearing from singers who would like to join our choir.  Contact Deborah Davies (01949 851030 or 07759 091160) for an informal chat - we would love to hear from you and  we sing in some fantastic cathedrals and other venues - see our gallery of photographs and what we got up to in Italy!  Here's a bit about us: 

"The Cranmer Company of Singers & Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1995. Since then the choir has sung the services at over 20 Cathedrals around Britain including: Durham, York, Salisbury, Canterbury, Wells, Winchester, Worcester, Gloucester, Chester, Truro, Coventry, Bath, Norwich, Ely, St.Davids, Dublin, Belfast and Liverpool. During this time we have sung at two "royal" Cathedral services: one at Norwich cathedral commemorating the Queen's Golden Wedding Anniversary (which was attended by Princess Alexandra); and a service commemorating the Queen Mother's 100th Birthday at Ely Cathedral. The annual charity concerts put on by the choir and orchestra have raised close to £20,000 since 1996, for charities including UNICEF, Headway, Macmillan Cancer Relief, Multiple Sclerosis Society and Belvoir Castle restoration fund. Our aims are to raise funds for those in need, and to encourage and promote active music making in the community, with a special emphasis on British  music.  

 "In 2010 we were the first choir from Britain to attend the Alta Pusteria International Choir Festival in northern Italy in the beautiful Dolomites. It was a fabulous festival with over 3,000 singers from all over the world and we were very warmly welcomed at the festival singing sacred and secular British music. We intend revisiting this festival in June 2013. 

This year we have sung at Derby Cathedral, have put on a 'Come & Sing' Stainer's 'The Crucifixion' at Aslockton Church raising over £300 for the Japanese Tsunami Appeal and have presented our Spring Choral/Orchestral Concert at Bottesford Church raising funds for Macmillan Nurses and CLIC Sargent (caring for children with cancer). Other visits this year include Southwark, Guildford and Worcester Cathedrals.
