THE CHICHESTER SINGERSOne of the South’s leading amateur choirs

The Chichester Singers

The Chichester Singers have been an established part of musical life in Chichester and West Sussex for over 60 years.

The choir performs under the musical direction of Jonathan Willcocks, one of the UK’s foremost choral conductors and composers. We have over 150 singing members and our repertoire includes a broad range of music from the great choral classics to contemporary works, performed with first-class professional soloists and orchestras.

We currently work with the professional chamber orchestra Southern Pro Musica with most of our concerts in Chichester Cathedral.



Chichester Cathedral

St Matthew Passion – Bach

Join us this March for one of the undisputed masterpieces of sacred music, Bach’s monumental St Matthew Passion. Composed by the great master in 1727, the oratorio relates the story of the crucifixion in his typical dramatic style. Bach’s music exposes hidden layers of meaning in the original bible text and leads us on monumental journey through Christ’s Passion. Featuring The Prebendal School Chamber Choir. This should be unmissable!
