This Early Music Chamber choir of around 22 singers, established in 1989 and based in the Derbyshire Peak District, brings together musicians from a wide area of the Midlands and Northern Counties. The choir's repertoire includes English and Italian Madrigals, French Chansons, Tudor Anthems, Latin motets, masses and psalm settings, mostly performed a cappella, although major performances involve an instrumental group. Concert venues have included Derby Cathedral, Selby Abbey, Fountains Abbey, Pershore Abbey, Worksop College and St Pancras Church, London. The choir has also led the music for weekend services, by special invitation in York Minster, in Bath Abbey and in Ely Cathedral and presented a reconstruction of a Pre-Reformation mass in Sheffield Cathedral. An extract from the choir's recording of the mass setting Missa Cuiusvis Toni, by 15th Century composer Johannes Ockeghem, was used by the BBC as introductory music to a Radio Four series.
