Welcome

Aside


You’ve found the website for the smaller of the Barts choirs, whose history stretches back to 1971 when the choir of Christ Church, Woburn Square, came together with an orchestra to perform The Messiah. The rest, as they say, is history. This site celebrates that history and aims to bring old friends and followers together. We hope you enjoy your visit.
