Chorus Angelorum

Chorus Angelorum, comprising of some of the UK’s leading choral professionals, is an elite chamber choir founded by Gavin Carr in 2007 to perform the St Matthew Passion in Bath Abbey with the English Chamber Orchestra, Dame Emma Kirkby, Sarah Connolly and James Gilchrist. With the immense success of this concert, Gavin Carr was invited to tour with his choir in Carmina Burana for the Emilia-Romagna Fesitval in Naples, Bologna, Montepulciano and Llubjana. A concert of Verdi Opera Choruses was warmly received in Cesenatico, Italy, and a command performance for the Archbishop of Turin soon followed with Messiaen’s Trois petites liturgies de la presence divine with Jan Latham-Koenig and the orchestra of the Teatro Regio, Turin. The choir’s Messiah tours with Bath Philhamronia in the West Country are eagerly anticipated, and 2009 saw it return to Bath Abbey for a sell-out programme shared with this orchestra including Tallis’ great 40-part motet Spem in alium. Recent performances have also included a sell-out appearance at the Frome Festival, Somerset, with Treasures from the Spanish Renaissance, featuring the Victoria Requiem. The recording of Paul Carr’s Requiem for an Angel and other choral works by this composer marks the choir’s cd debut.
