ST GILES CATHEDRAL, EDINBURGH, 14 JULY 2019
The Singers travelled to Edinburgh to sing the services in St Giles Cathedral (The High Kirk of Edinburgh) in the Royal Mile. Our organist for the services was Will Briant, Organ Scholar at St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral and Herrick Bunney Organ Scholar at St Giles. We were covering for The Giles Singers who were away on their biennial tour.
The sun shone, it was hot and we had excellent congregations as well as a massive audience for the St Giles at 6 concert, which was kind enough to give us a standing ovation at the end of the concert.
The concert included Lisa McMaster’s Two Introits on Icelandic Texts which we had premiered at the morning services as well as our third live performance of Edmund Hunt’s Vita Hunt premiered by The Singers on Radio 3 in January 2019. It was great to see such enthusiasm for new music from our audience.

Welcome to the web site of The Singers, a chamber choir based in Newcastle upon Tyne. We hope you enjoy your visit here and we look forward to welcoming you to one of our concerts – or even as a Singer – in the near future.
We have a new photograph.
Here we are outside All Saints Church in Rothbury in Northumberland on Saturday 20 October 2019 after we gave a concert in the church.
