High-quality singing, innovative programmes and communicative performances are the hallmarks of Nonsuch Singers. The choir has gained a reputation for stylistic versatility in a cappella and accompanied works ranging from the Renaissance to the present day. It has frequently sought to make less familiar music accessible by exploring connections between works by established composers and lesser-known contemporary works.
Concerts have featured more than 80 works by living British composers, some of whom – including Diana Burrell, Gabriel Jackson, Roxanna Panufnik, John Tavener and Judith Weir – have attended rehearsals of their music.
The choir of some 40 members typically gives six or seven concerts a year, mostly in prominent London venues but also further afield, regularly performing with some of the UK’s leading instrumental ensembles and finest young vocal soloists.
