About the Choir

Chantry Quire was formed in Chichester by Christopher Larley in 1999, with the twin aims of helping young local singers to gain experience, and promoting new music.  The choir now draws singers from the whole of Sussex and beyond, and gives concerts in various Sussex venues.
We perform a wide range of repertoire, from early to contemporary music.

In Spring 2021 we made a video, to take the place of our regular Passiontide concerts at Boxgrove Priory.  You will find some pieces from our video here.
Sing with us


The choir normally rehearses in Arundel on around six Tuesday evenings leading up to each concert.  However, the rehearsals for our November concert may need to be held elsewhere, to accommodate larger numbers while still allowing for 'social distancing' if required.
​We are currently looking for two additional Basses to join us in time for our summer programme.  Applications from other voices are, of course, always welcome.
If you would like to join us, please request an audition.
