Wedding Repertoire

The choir is taken from a pool of some 90 excellent musicians, with a core of about 16, meaning that there is little, if anything, that is out of the question! Most of the standard repertoire can be performed with just 14 singers, with specific pieces manageable by groups as small as 4. Some of the most popular items are listed below, but this list is by no means exhaustive:
