Brighton Singers

Programme Note

The Brighton Singers chamber choir offer a treat for Spring with beautiful a cappella English madrigals and partsongs. Conducted by Nicholas Houghton the programme features Benjamin Britten's Five Flower songs. The choir will also sing several other unaccompanied pieces composed across the years  to celebrate the season. 

This church is dedicated to St Nicholas, the patron saint of sailors and fishermen. Until 1873, it was the Parish Church of Brighton and it still is the Mother Church. Its beautiful interior with its excellent acoustic makes it a wonderful concert venue and smaller events are perfectly suited as the Church's structure ensures the space never feels too large.

Come and enjoy beautiful music in a beautiful space.
