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 (seven for the Brahms concert this autumn).
 
​We are currently looking for additional singers to join us for our November concert.  We also need more tenors and basses on a permanent basis (applications from other voices are, of course, always welcome).
If you would like to join us, please request an audition.
