The North Herts Guild of Singers is a happy and successful choir which has been going strong for more than 50 years. Based in Hitchin, we are one of the best-known and best-supported choirs in the area.


The choir was back performing live on Saturday November 13 for the first time in nearly two years, and it was wonderful! We weren't able to have a packed church, for obvious reasons, and the singers were further away from each other than usual but with Harry up front, Colin at the organ and our lovely soloists Rosamond Thomas and Nina Kiva we produced a concert of Duruflé, Vierne and Faure that we all enjoyed. Then on December 11 we returned for our Christmas concert with Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on Christmas Carols featuring baritone soloist Charlie Baigent - and at last, some audience participation!

If you go to 
to About/Listen, you can hear some of the music we recorded while rehearsing from home via Zoom over recent seasons along with two from last year; one of these was made in the autumn term, when the choir performed Joseph Haydn’s oratorio ‘The Creation’ to pre-recorded learning tracks created by professional singers just for us, with music laid down on piano by our accompanist Colin Spinks. Then at the end of term we were joined by friends and family members for a wonderful Christmas concert and produced a virtual recording of a popular carol in a less familiar version.

During the spring term we sang the  Mozart Coronation Mass, Haydn's Te Deum and the Durante Magnificat, and enjoyed a sing-through of all the music at our last rehearsal of the term.


WHy not come to one of our concerts?

Thankfully, after several barren months, we are now able to put concert information back on the website! The choir is enormously grateful to Harry, our MD, and Colin, our repetiteur, for guiding us through months of online sessions that have kept us together as a choir and taught us new ways of making music while we were unable to sing together in the same place. 

Our Next Concert

On Saturday April 2 we are scheduled to sing Handel's Coronation Anthems, Stanford's Te Deum and Mozart's Missa Brevis in B flat at Walsworth Road Baptist Church, Hitchin. Watch this space!
