Who we are and what we do

Brampton Chamber Choir specialises in music from the 16th and early 17th Centuries. Over the last 30 years we have built up a loyal following of audiences who love to hear the sacred works of composers such as Palestrina, Byrd, Tallis, Victoria, Lassus and Josquin.
But although we are best known for Renaissance music, we love to explore all choral work, and have performed music by Bach, Handel, Monteverdi and Mozart, as well as some of the great work from the 19th and 20th centuries.
Where possible we like to draw links between composers. For example, we have performed 20th century works by Vaughan Williams and Gustav Holst alongside the music which had had a major influence on both, by Thomas Tallis (1505-1585).
We also like to encourage young musicians, and regularly involve student singers and instrumentalists in our concerts.
Because of our size, we are able to bring a sensitive and personal interpretation to the music we sing. A smaller group within the choir, known as the Consort, sing one or two voices to a part, and provide smaller-scale works in our concerts.
We are run by a committee, most of whom are singers. Members pay a subscription fee but are not expected to buy music. We are supported by income from concerts and by sponsors and patrons.
Rehearsals are from 7.45 to 9.45 pm on Sunday evenings at Brampton Methodist Church Hall.

Our singers all come from the Brampton, Carlisle and Haltwhistle area, and newcomers are always welcome. To find out more about joining us please
