Saturday 21 May - St Mary's, Burton Bradstock


Parnham Voices is a small chamber choir formed in 2002, the singers coming from a wide area centred on Beaminster, Dorset. We sing all types of music for unaccompanied voices - medieval to modern, sacred and secular - including masses and motets, anthems and folk songs, Victorian pieces and evergreens from the 20's and 30's. Click here for our repertoire list. Our Music Director is Nigel Edwards, who joined us in 2012.

Our 2016 Spring concerts began on Saturday 30 April at Chideock Catholic Church and our next performance is on Saturday 21 May at St Mary's, Burton Bradstock. With the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare in mind, we will explore some of the musical settings of his texts - by Morley, Purcell, and Shearing, among others.

2015 performances included our 'Palestrina to Porter' series of concerts in Yetminster, Chard and Martock and Bradpole as well Choral Evensong at Forde Abbey. Our eighth annual Singing Safari was in the Dorchester area when we performed four short recitals from our repertoire in churches as diverse as St Mary's, Cerne Abbas and St Michael's, Stinsford. For more details, click here.

We rounded off the year with music for Advent and Christmas firstly in St Martin's Kingsbury Episcopi on the afternoon of Sunday 6 December, and then at Barrington Court on Saturday the 19th.
