The Choir Archive

Updated: Jan 22

Roger from our Wycombe Choir has been keeping a record since he joined of all the music that we have sung at sessions and performed in our concerts. He has kindly sent this over to us l and we were amazed by how many pieces we have sung so we thought that we would share it with you.




The below items are Roger's list of song's and concerts that the Wycombe choir have sung since its inception as the Everyone Can Sing Choir. We will be adding the pieces and concerts for Chesham soon (unless anyone has a helpful record that they can send over....)
