Axminster Chamber Choir was formed in 2012 in response to a request, made to Judy Martin by several local singers, for a small auditioned ensemble which would specialise in singing Early Music with very few voices to a part. The choir held its first rehearsal in October, 2012, and gave its first public performance in December of that year.
The group has now increased in both size and repertoire to consist of twenty five singers performing polyphonic music from the Renaissance period to the Baroque. It has performed both liturgically and in concert and has, on three occasions, joined with Yeovil Chamber Choir (pictured left) to explore some of the larger Early Music repertoire.
Axminster Chamber Choir rehearses on Monday evenings from 6.00-7.30pm in the Minster Church in Axminster.
