City Chorus is a friendly, hard working choir, open to all with no audition. We rehearse on Tuesday evenings near Bank station and perform several times a year in beautiful venues.

 

Our musical director is Paul Ayres and our accompanist (piano and organ) is Philip Shannon. Our concerts feature top professional musicians.

 

Please subscribe to our occasional newsletter.

 

We look forward to seeing you soon!

*Note from Olaf, who provided the Silver Swan mp3s:

Here are two versions, both very impressive, and I can't decide which one's better. The Silver Swan round by the Kings Singers is not exactly like our version, as it differs in a few notes, but overall it's very similar, and also sounds very good.

Converting Midi files:

 

Though imacs, ipads, iphones etc can't read midi files directly, you can convert

them online. Here's one site:

[choose "don't add to public database", and I suggest turning off Chorus

and Reverb]
