The choir is directed by its conductor Christopher Finch, winner of the 2010 BBC Choir of the Year. Under his direction, A Handful of Singers has developed a wide repertoire of music, classical and contemporary, serious and not too serious, and has gained an enviable reputation for the quality and vibrancy of its performances.
Our next concert – Saturday 6th December, 7:30, at St John the Baptist, Northend, Batheaston – will celebrate Advent with a concert featuring much-loved choral favourites and a sprinkling of magical lesser-known masterpieces to get you in the mood for the festive season. The very best time of year, celebrated together in the very best way. A glorious opportunity to experience the quintessentially British choral tradition at Christmas.
And the choir has released its debut album: do listen to the following sample of excerpts from the CD. The CD may be purchased through members of the choir, by phone – 01225 311850, or by email to email@example.com .
