Introducing the HR Taylor Charitable Trust

The Chandos Choir is delighted to announce a generous and much-needed financial donation from the HR Taylor Charitable Trust. This organisation has the aim of encouraging the performance of live classical music in Surrey and adjacent areas.

About the HR Taylor Trust
The Humphrey Richardson Taylor Charitable Trust was established in 1997 for the advancement of public education in, and appreciation of, the art and science of Music and allied performing arts.


Chandos Choir has a lovely concert for you, Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle (Small Solemn Mass)!

It's a serious religious work with the most delightful touches from a man who remained a theatrical composer to the end. The Mass was conceived on a small scale, with just two pianos (one of them used sparingly) plus a harmonium accompanying the four soloists and a four-part choir.

We will also be singing 'There Is An Old Belief', 'My Soul There Is A Country' by Hubert Parry and 'Greater Love Hath No Man' by John Ireland to commemorate the Centenary of the Armistice.
