30th Anniversary Concert October 2014

Quorum, Milton Keynes

Quorum is a small chamber choir based in Milton Keynes who sing renaissance sacred music for services in local churches.  Each year Quorum sings services at a Cathedral as a visiting choir.

Quorum’s repertoire includes music by renaissance composers (Tallis, Byrd, Victoria, Lassus, Guerrero, etc) and 20th and 21st centuries composers.

Quorum is available to sing at weddings in local churches and corporate events in the Milton Keynes/North Bucks area.

The choir is well known for the high quality of its singing, its flexibility, and ability to provide suitable music for a range of church services including Choral Evensongs and Sung Eucharists.

The group is considered ‘quorate’ when there are enough people present to cover each part, hence the name Quorum.
