We love hosting Singing Days, when we are joined by guest singers to work together on a selected work. These are very popular, attracting around 100 additional singers to join us for the day. In past years, for example we have worked on Bach’s Mass in B Minor and St. John Passion and introduced the commissioned Psalm Cantata by John McCabe to a wider group of singers. In 2023 we looked at Handel’s Israel in Egypt.
Our next Singing Day will be on 3rd February 2024, when we will focus on Duruflé’s Requiem. You can hire or buy a copy of the music on the day or bring your own (Durand edition).
It will take place from 10am – 5pm at St. Cyprians Clarence Gate, Glentworth Street, London NW1 6AX.
The regular fee is £25, £10 for students up to 26 years. Additional fees apply for music hire or purchase.

Feedback on Singing Day 2022
In our 2022 Singing Day we looked at one of J.S. Bach‘s most amazing and complex works, the St. John Passion with our then new Musical Director Harry Bradford.
Here are some of the things guests had to say about this one:
“I thought the way Harry linked the pieces showing the context very useful.“
“What an excellent day! Please thank everyone involved in organising it. And Harry is brilliant – I hope we can recruit someone of his calibre for [our choir].“
“…was wonderful….! Heavenly music, to cheer and succour , and such a warm and welcoming…well..welcome …! A huge thank you to you all , who made it such a fabulous day …after all our tedious tribulations of the last two years ..it was marvellous to be back…! I wish you a very happy and safe season, and look forward very much to the next workshop day !“
“I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the singing day at the weekend. – very stimulating. I think you have a great find in Harry – he was excellent – didn’t waste a minute and managed to get through everything right on time!………and his policy of putting everything into context was really good.“
