'Quire Voices' trademark performance is not to traditionally stand on the concert platform and sing at the audience but to surround the listeners, almost in-the-round but with the choir on the outside. This style of singing leaves no room for error or for weakness of voice and demonstrates the superb musicianship of these wonderful singers...The last item on the programme was so movingly and so mysteriously sung, it was not only the audience who were moved to tears but some of the performers too.'
Holy Trinity Garrison Church, Windsor, writing about Quire Voices' concert 'Faure: Requiem', July 2014
Founded in 2011 by Sean and three close friends, Quire Voices is an excellent semi-professional chamber choir based in Windsor, Berkshire. The choir gives opportunities to experienced singers who have pursued other career directions, but who wish to continue singing at a high standard in an auditioned group of approximately thirty singers. Quire Voices perform a varied repertoire that consists of music from across the globe and spans six hundred years.
Quire Voices perform at least three concerts a year, as well as singing at a range of other events, including charity dinners, concerts, and an annual service at The Royal Chapel of All Saints, Windsor Great Park.
Prominent collaborations include performances with The Heroes Band, the Orpheus Sinfonia, and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Most notably, they participated in 'In Flanders Fields', a concert commemorating the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, in the presence of His Royal Highness The Earl of Wessex. The concert was also featured on The Full Works Concert by Jade Jones on Classic FM on Wednesday 12 November 2014. The concert, which concluded the 45th annual Windsor Festival, featured Quire Voices alongside The Band of The Household Cavalry, soloist Kathryn Rudge, and actress Amanda Root.
