                      Our Repertoire

The choir has a varied repertoire of music which ranges from early music of the 15th century, through to present day composers such as Andrew Lloyd Webber, Steve King and Paul Mealor.   Recently the choir have performed Mozart’s Requiem, J. S. Bach’s “St. John Passion”, Monteverdi’s “Vespers”, Handel’s “Messiah”, Beethoven’s Choral Fantasia” and many works by early composers such as Gabrieli, Praetorius and Schutz.  The Linton Singers also have a large collection of folk songs, madrigals and Scottish songs in their repertoire.

We have many contacts with local instrumentalists who provide us with fine orchestras for our concerts.
