Collegium Singers

Programme Note

Collegium Singers are looking forward to singing in the Church of St Mary Magdalene in its newly confirmed status as Taunton Minster. 

The programme spans the centuries, from Tudor music of ‘The Triumphs of Oriana’ collection, together with later music which has graced Royal Occasions to the present day.

A shameless excuse to sing some of the very best music sung for Royal Occasions.
