"Full marks to this chamber choir for its enterprise in programming
and its excellence in performance"
Bob Briggs, Musical Pointers
Tredici rehearsing at St George's Bloomsbury (Nov 2011)
TREDICI exists to perform some of the greatest sacred music ever
written to the highest possible standard
The choir is resident at St Giles in the Fields in Holborn. Our association with this beautiful 1734 Henry Flitcroft-designed church dates back to the choir’s formation, in 2004, when Richard Thomas was invited to put together a group of singers for the Leprosy Mission's annual carol service. There were 13 singers at that first event – hence the name.
Over the past nine years the choir's membership has evolved into the current group of 32 - all of whom are experienced singers drawn from a variety of leading London choirs including the Philharmonia Chorus, BBC Symphony Chorus and London Symphony Chorus.
Our wide repertoire encompasses sacred music from the 16th to the 21st centuries and past concerts have featured masterpieces by such renowned composers as Monteverdi, de Padilla, Guerrero, Victoria, Tallis, Purcell, and Byrd through to Howells, Rachmaninov, Britten, Tavener and MacMillan.
We rehearse for just one hour a week (in our Monday lunchtimes) but still strive to perform at near-professional standards and our ever-growing audience is testament to this achievement.
Please visit the Concerts page for details of forthcoming events, listen to some recent performances and, if you are interested in joining TREDICI, please get in touch.
We hope to see you soon.
