Cantiones begins the search for a new Musical Director!

Our current MD Martin Bussey will be retring in December 2024 after five years at the helm, during which time we have benefitted hugely from his choral expertise and experience. We are therefore looking for someone to take the choir forward from January 2025. Could that be you? If you are interested in knowing more about the role please have a look at the information here on the website, then download the DOCX link to the Job Descripton and how to apply below. Closing date: April 30th 2024

Although The Dream of Gerontius concert with the Chester Bach Singers and the Chester Philharmonic Orchestra wasn't recorded, a member of the audience recorded a clip on a phone of the concert from the 5th row back.

Cantiones is a friendly and ambitious choir with room for a couple more tenors. We sing a wide range of music from all periods and styles. Our concerts aim to be both spiritually fulfilling and enjoyable for audience and choir. We look for the same mix in our rehearsals. We work hard because we seek and achieve high standards but our conductor, Martin Bussey is firmly of the view that rehearsals must be positive experiences.

You will ideally have a range up to top G (beyond would be wonderful!) but if you don’t quite get there don’t be put off. We work at vocal technique as well as the notes. We look for confidence in sight reading but also a readiness to put in some practice outside rehearsals if reading is not your strongest area. You’ll be invited to try us out in a rehearsal and see if you like us and our music making.

We currently rehearse in Holy Trinity Church in the centre of Oswestry.

Interested? Please get in touch with our chair, Paul Myres on
