...out of the archives

On the occasion of the 25th Anniversary we looked into the archives of recordings, performances and moments in the choir’s history that we thought would be good to share. We have tried to select tracks that represent the different repertoire, soloists and styles that the choir has rejoiced in over the years, as well as some of the amazing venues, festivals, tours and guest artists we have been privileged to experience. This isn’t a studio recording but a bowerbird nest of disparate tracks that we think capture the choir’s spirit and history.
