We are a choir that meets up a few times each year to sing Choral Evensong and other church services in the most special and inspiring places, usually cathedrals and collegiate chapels, or chapels in former stately homes.
If you love singing traditional sacred choral music in a choir, and like the idea of doing so in amazing locations with new and old friends and partaking of agreeable hospitality, this may be something you would enjoy.
This is where you can find out about our upcoming live (and occasionally virtual) singing events.
This website is also our Music Cupboard. You can find here a lot of music for evensongs and other choral services, in many cases with rehearsal audios or videos, to help singers learn their part. This may all be freely accessed and copied for non-commercial use, with a credit to 'With Cheerful Voice'.
Click on an image below, or the link in one of the drop down menus above, to find the music for one of our current events or projects.
Below are details of our upcoming events. All our events are open to any reasonably experienced choral singer. You do not need to be an expert sight reader. You just need to be willing to learn the pieces ahead of time, using the rehearsal aids provided.
We do not meet as a choir until the start of the event.
No commitment involved, except to the event you sign up for.
As well as singing in special places, we enjoy agreeable hospitality and like to get to know the places we visit.
We try to ensure that we have a good social time. We come together as singers, and part as friends!
