Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society was founded in 1933 and is currently directed by David Ballard and accompanied by Philip Adams. In recent years the choir has worked with both the English Chamber Orchestra and London Mozart Players, has commissioned work by Patrick Hawes and Richard Allain and taken a key role in important community events including significant concerts to commemorate the centenary of the beginning and ending of World War One in 2014 and 2018. Our repertoire is quite varied including many of the larger choral works by composers from the 17th through to the 21st century as well as occasional smaller or lesser known pieces. Each year the choir performs three concerts in local venues and also runs a 'Come and Sing' event in the early autumn. We practise on Monday evenings in term time, 7.00 pm - 9.00 pm, at St Andrew's Methodist Church, Cromer Road, Sheringham. The choir welcomes singers of all voices and abilities without audition.

St Peter's Church Sheringham full for East Anglian Premiere
Mon 25 Nov 2019

There was a full church in St Peter's Sheringham on Saturday 23 November for the Choral Society's celebration of Songs Ancient and Modern. The performance began with a joyous rendering of Haydn's Insanae et Vanae Curae followed by a beautiful presentation of Mozart's Mass in Bb during which all four soloists (Zaira Palumbo, Graham Northwood, Simon Mulligan and Andrew Weeks) brought the music to life. In particular soprano Zaira Palumbo's beautiful clear and effortless voice enchanted the audience. The unaccompanied Mozart Ave Verum Corpus sung from memory by the choir concludried the first half and was greatly appreciated by the enthusiastic audience.

The recently composed Requiem by Matthew Coleridge was particularly well received by the audience who were delighted by the fine cello playing of Debbie Whomes in this and Faure's Cantique de Jean Racine which preced it.

Throughout the concert musical director David Ballard's conducting was firm and assured and the organ accompaniment of Philip Adams was superb. Rachmaninov's splendid Bogoroditsye Dyevo brought the performance to a fitting conclusion.
