What people say.....

A review of the Dvorák Requiem November 2018:

Yesterday evening I had one of the most thrilling and uplifting musical experiences that I can remember, hearing the Stroud Choral Society perform Dvorak's Requiem in the beautiful setting of Tewkesbury Abbey......The sheer quality of the performance of this seldom heard masterpiece was outstanding by any standard, and from start to finish I found the music utterly compelling and absorbing. It really deserves to be performed more often.
Sincere and heartfelt thanks to Stroud Choral Society, the inspirational Huw Williams, the four wonderful soloists and the superb musicians of The Bristol Ensemble for a truly magnificent and memorable concert !

Stroud Choral Society

Stroud Choral Society was founded in 1834 and therefore is one of the oldest choral societies in Britain. However, we are always moving with the times and in recent years have formed a childrens choir - The Minpins - and a youth choir. Both groups sing with us occasionally and also have their own concert programme.

Typically we perform four major concerts throughout the year, singing in venues such as Bath Abbey and  Tewkesbury Abbey.

Our repertoire in recent years has included  Belshazzar's Feast by William Walton, The German Requiem by Brahms, The Chichester Psalms by Leonard Berstein and Rutter's Requiem.
